Comedian Katt Williams Facing 2nd Lawsuit Over Oakland Performance
OAKLAND (CBS/AP) — Comic Katt Williams is being sued over his onstage meltdown and aborted performance in Oakland.
It’s the second Alameda County lawsuit filed over Williams’ bizarre 10 minutes on stage earlier this month at Oakland’s Oracle Arena.
The suit filed by 35-year-old Brian Herline, of Modesto, said he and hundreds of fans were disappointed when Williams took off his clothes and challenged people to fight.
Herline is seeking class-action certification in an effort to get ticket money back for all audience members.
A representative for Williams has refused to comment.
The Williams meltdown came two days after he was arrested on charges of attacking an aspiring rapper on his tour bus outside a downtown Oakland hotel. He was later released with no charges filed.
