Katt Williams

Catches A Break

In Felony Child Endangerment Case

EXCLUSIVE

0125_katt_williams_article_tmzKatt Williams finally caught a break ... and a big one -- the comic WILL NOT face criminal charges after cops found drugs and guns in the house he shared with his kids ... TMZ has learned.

TMZ broke the story ... Katt got popped for felony child endangerment at his Woodland Hills home after cops found numerous guns and marijuana -- although Katt told us he didn't consider pot to be a drug.

But law enforcement sources tell us ... the case fell apart for a couple of reasons. First, Katt insists his kids couldn't get at the guns because they were locked up. On top of that, there were so many people living in the house there was no way of tying Katt to the marijuana -- and reasonable assumptions don't count.

So the D.A. decided not to file felony charges and referred the case to the L.A. City Attorney, which handles misdemeanors. But even the City Attorney felt the case had big problems, so Katt will appear at an informal hearing at the City Attorney's office, where he'll be counseled and warned.

So that's that ... until Katt makes his next move.

They coming for katt williams. Dude speaks too much truth. So far every criminal charge thrown at him is fraudulent. Everything talked about him crazy. Hes on crack, punching out target employees and riding on a old man big wheeler on a slow speed chase with the cops. Something sounds suspect.

Dave Chappelle was right. Nobody is just gonna hand fools a pile of money without wanting something back. Katt probably spoke about something he shouldnt have said. I think they gonna kill katt williams. Piling all these charges in a couple yrs and making him seem crazy and deranged. Also hanging with suge aint smart. They gonna take him out and say gang violence. Nuts.

Give him his due. Sometimes he acts crazy but the cops are out to get him. Now what this is about is not him getting away with something. His guns were in a safe and marijuana is a prescription drug in California. No doubt someone had a license for it, maybe even Katt himself. Here's what I infer from the evidence. They arrested him without cause. The District Attorney sh!t a brick when they saw that these charges wouldn't stick so they tried to drop it on the city attorney. Well they have had so many cases of corrupt cops in Los Angeles requiring cases for years back to be thrown out. They couldn't risk it because too many people are watching Katt now. Either the cops messed up which is highly likely or it is a plot against him in which case he should probably leave LA. Just my opinion,

All I read was he had the guns "locked up". Dude can be as crazy as he wants. On that alone, he gets credit.
