UPDATE: Stand-up comic arrested after dispute

UPDATE: 1:19 p.m.: Jail records show Williams was released from the King County Jail at 12:17 a.m. Monday. His tour manager, Suge Knight, posted Williams’ bail, the celebrity-news site TMZ.com reported.

Williams is scheduled to make a court appearance Thursday morning, but does not have to personally appear if an attorney attends on his behalf, said Kimberly Mills, a spokeswoman for the Seattle City Attorney’s Office.

UPDATE: 10:25 a.m. | Stand-up comedian Micah “Katt” Williams was arrested in Seattle Sunday afternoon after he allegedly got into a dispute at a bar in South Lake Union.

Williams’ arrest came after his no-show Thursday for the first night of a planned two-night engagement at the Paramount Theatre.

On Sunday, Seattle police said Williams, 41, was at the World Sports Grille near Ninth Avenue North and Westlake Avenue North at about 2:30 p.m. when he allegedly exchanged words with other patrons, brandished a pool cue at the bar’s manager and refused to leave. Police also allege that Williams followed a family out of the bar, flicked a cigarette through the window of the family’s car, and threw a rock at the vehicle. The cigarette hit one of the family members just below her eye, police said.

Williams was booked into the King County jail for investigation of assault, harassment and obstruction. Police said he struggled with officers as they arrested him.  The incident is the latest in a number of run-ins between Williams and police in several cities.

Williams performed at the Paramount Friday evening. But after the performance, Seattle police said some fans alleged that Williams attacked them after they tried to take a photo with him. Williams denied those allegations, police said, and no arrests were made.
