Katt Williams is under criminal investigation for committing a deadly form of whip lash ... so claims a man who says the comedian used his Rolls-Royce in an attempt to mow him down.
Katt was tooling around near LAX Tuesday ... when a guy named Glen Jackson pulled alongside and tried to snap a cell phone pic. Jackson says it triggered a volcanic reaction from Katt.
Katt and a bodyguard allegedly got out of the car, tried grabbing Jackson's phone, then pepper sprayed him.
Jackson says he stumbled out of the car, choking from the fumes, when Katt rolled his Rolls smack into his leg ... then doused him in pepper spray again before driving off.
Inglewood police are investigating a possible assault with a deadly weapon -- the Rolls. They'd like a chit chat with Katt and the bodyguard.
It's the 4th violent confrontation with Katt in 2 weeks ... two altercations on PCH ... and an alleged gun attack at an L.A. comedy club.
We reached out to Katt ... so far no word back.

Bloody Party Brawl

We now know Paris' side and it's WAY different. There were only 5 or 6 people at the house when Jeremy and a few of his friends just walked in without invitation. They were unwelcome and Brandon Davis asked them to leave. Jeremy went ballistic, saying, "Don't you know who I am? I was on 'Baywatch' and 'Celebrity Rehab'."
Jeremy then grabbed one of the guys and started choking him out, almost with superhuman strength. Several people jumped him to subdue him, and Jasmine Waltz hit him over the head with a vodka bottle.
Jeremy left and he and his friends broke something off Paris' car. Barron Hilton was bleeding, got stitches and is still in the hospital.
There was an all-out bloody brawl in Malibu early Sunday morning at Paris Hilton's house ... leaving a former "Baywatch" star a bloody mess ... TMZ has learned.
Jeremy Jackson says Paris, Brandon Davis and others viciously attacked him at around 2 AM ... someone cracking a liquor bottle on his head. Jeremy says, "They were literally going Rodney King on my ass."
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... they got a call from 2 people, each claiming they were attacked by the other. Our sources say one of the 2 people was Paris Hilton's brother ... she has 2 and cops didn't know which. We do know Barron Hilton was at the party.
We're told when cops arrived at Paris' $65K a month rental ... no one wanted to press charges so no one was arrested.
We have not been able to reach Paris or Brandon for comment.

7/11/2014 3:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Columbus Short is finally revealing exactly what drove him into such a rage that he delivered a knockout blow to a guy's face earlier this year -- and it might change your opinion of the hot-headed actor.
Short was on Atlanta's V-103 radio station when he was asked about the bar fight back in March, and he said ... "I had to defend my wife at a bar. This man was being highly, highly disrespectful ... slapping her in the face with $20 bills."
TMZ broke the story ... Columbus knocked out Felton Hyche III, and at the time all we knew was that Hyche had allegedly said or done something rude to Short's wife.
Columbus also explains that Hyche was the one who got physical first -- but if what he says about the money to his wife's face is true, we gotta ask ...

Rails on Tabloid
Marriage Conflict story is a LIE!
7/9/2014 6:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
George Clooney is going nuclear on The Daily Mail, claiming it flat out made up a story about his fiancee's mother objecting to their wedding on religious grounds.
George is especially pissed off about the line in the story that Amal's mom told half of Beruit that if she married someone outside the Druze religion she could be excommunicated. The story also referenced reports that such brides sometimes end up dead.
Clooney starts off by saying Amal's mom is NOT Druze. And more fundamentally, she's not against the marriage.
Clooney didn't stop with the specific story. He went on to accuse The Daily Mail of habitually lying, saying "If they fabricate stories of Amal being pregnant, or that the marriage will take place on the set of Downton Abbey, or that I'm running for office, or any number of idiotic stories that they sit at their computers and invent, I don't care."
He clearly cares a little.
The Daily Mail has removed the article and apologized. They say they have launched an investigation into the matter.
Stopped by Cops After Bizarre Taser Incident
7/8/2014 6:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Katt Williams got pulled over in Malibu Tuesday evening by Sheriff's deputies investigating his security guard for tasing a random guy on Pacific Coast Highway,
Law enforcement sources tell us the guy started kicking a car driven by Katt's assistant ... who was following Katt while he rode a Can-Am Spyder. When Katt's security guard got out of the car ... we're told the stranger got aggressive, and the security guard zapped him with a taser.
The guy then waved down Sheriff's deputies in the area and explained what had happened. Deputies tracked down Katt ... pulled him over and questioned him and the guard about the incident.
We're told, as of now, no one's getting arrested -- not Katt's security guard or the guy he tased.
One of our photogs spoke to Katt on the side of PCH just a few moments after the incident, and his version jibes almost 100% with law enforcement.
He did add that the guy claimed to be a lifeguard, and hurled the n-word during the altercation.
Here's what's funny about this -- we initially got a tip that Rihanna had been pulled over on PCH. Turns out "Rihanna" was really just Katt's assistant ... who must be smoking hot.
Well played, Katt.
Alleged Victims Say Katt
Committed Vicious Gun Attack
7/4/2014 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Katt Williams is a gun-toting lunatic who smashed a car window with the butt of the gun and then had the nerve to defame the alleged victims ... this according to the alleged victims
TMZ broke the story ... L.A. County Sheriff's deputies rushed to The Comedy Store in West Hollywood Tuesday after Katt allegedly pulled a gun on someone. Katt told us the story was BS ... saying he was threatened by gangbangers who then called cops to get him in trouble.
But the 4 alleged victims tell us ... they have nothing to do with gangs. They were outside the club shooting a documentary, "From the Hood to Hollywood."
They say they spotted Katt and asked if they could shoot him for the doc, but he angrily said no. They claim a woman then pulled up, popped the trunk, Katt went inside and pulled out 2 big guns ... then walked over to their car and smashed in the window with the butt of one of the guns.
The guy who was driving says the glass shattered and he suffered cuts.
The 4 filmmakers say Katt can expect a lawsuit.
As for Katt, he tells us, "Whatever the gangbangers say."
I Didn't Have A Gun
Gangbangers Attacked Me
7/2/2014 11:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Katt Williams says whoever called 911 on him Tuesday night is a LIAR ... because he was NOT brandishing a gun at a West Hollywood comedy club.
Katt tells TMZ ... he was actually the victim ... verbally attacked and threatened by 4 gangbangers who repeatedly called him "Cuz" ... Crip slang referring to the rival Bloods gang.
The comedian goes on to say things got physical when the 4 guys followed him to his car and began assaulting him.
But Katt says he never pulled a gun ... never even had one. So the 911 call reporting he was brandishing a weapon is absurd ... or so he says.
As for who called 911 ... Katt is convinced it's was the gang members themselves. If that's true, it certainly goes against type ... gang members generally stay away from those digits.
