Katt Williams Catches A Break In Felony Child Endangerment Case

Katt 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.
