Katt Williams


at Subway

12/21/2012 4:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

6:20 AM
-- Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Katt and Suge each received citations at the scene.

Katt was cited for parking too close to a fire hydrant. Suge received a ticket related to multiple outstanding traffic warrants. 

Katt Williams was detained by police in front of a Subway restaurant in West Hollywood Thursday night after cops suspected the comic was involved in some sort of "disturbance" at the restaurant, TMZ has learned ...  but Katt says he did nothing wrong.

Katt tells TMZ ... the drama began while he was waiting in front of the Subway while his friend/tour manager Suge Knight was getting a manicure/pedicure at a nearby nail salon.

While he was waiting for Suge, cops arrived to the Subway and confronted Katt.

Cops tell TMZ ... they responded to a call about a disturbance involving the comic.

Katt was handcuffed and placed in the back of a squad car ... where he was smiling ... and even gave a thumbs up to a TMZ photog.

Eventually, Katt was released from custody and allowed to leave the scene.

Katt tells TMZ ... cops initially took some weed he was carrying at the time ... and a gun ... but eventually gave back both items because he had a medical marijuana card and a permit for the weapon.

However cops tell us ... there was no firearm ... and the only thing they found was an empty magazine for a .45 caliber gun.

Katt also says the incident was racially motivated.

Katt tells TMZ he wants to sue over the incident ... and is already thinking about contacting Gloria Allred ... it's unclear if he was joking.

After Katt had been released from custody, one Subway employee brought sandwiches for Katt and Suge. The Subway employee tells TMZ ... he never saw Katt involved in any sort of physical altercation.

It's only been 13 days since Katt's last arrest -- he was busted outside of Sacramento on Dec. 7 on a felony warrant related to a police chase.

Besides the arrests, Katt has a TON of other legal issues he's dealing with these days ... including the fallout from a bar fight in which he allegedly threw a rock at a car, a lawsuit over a bizarre onstage meltdown, and of course ... slapping a Target employee in the face.

Katt also says the incident was racially motivated.

Of course. What's the point of being black if you can't shout racism every time your ass gets into trouble?

Guess what? If all of a sudden you're in the news multiple times a week for dumb sh*t you're doing it's probably not racism.. it's you being a f*ck up.

Kit Kat is the male version of LiLo! They are loose cannons and can do anything they want and never go to jail, if they do, they are out in minutes! I can't believe that he had a gun, even unloaded and a bag of weed and didn't get arrested. And THANK YOU SUBWAY for feeding those 2 RICH RICHARDS! Millionaires! What about the HOMELESS! Kit Kat would rather pour champagne out on the ground than feed the hungry! your day is coming Kit Kat!

Katt, What's up with you? You acting all crazy and s h i t !! You need to just chill, little man! It looks like you might be going the way of Chapelle, except he didn't do all the stupid c r a p that you're doing. And quit with the race card, there's more to say about you!

Kay may have issues, but it seems ridiculous on the cops part now. He is being profiled/set up? I believe the first incidents but now it's just getting absurd arrested for doing nothing... Come on now!
