SEATTLE, Washington (CelebrityAccess) – Three former Katt Williams fans have filed a lawsuit against the comedian, claiming that he and his entourage attacked them following a show in Seattle.
According to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, the suit stems from a Dec. 1, 2012 show at Seattle's Paramount Theatre when Charles Adams, Domonique Adams-Swanson and their teenage child approached Williams after the show for a photo. In their lawsuit, they allege that Williams then became aggressive, swearing and threatening the group and then throwing chairs at them as they attempted to leave.
In the suit, the plaintiffs are seeking compensation for alleged unspecified medical damages and for mental anguish they claim Williams inflicted.
The suit also names Live Nation as a defendant, citing them for allegedly failing to protect the complainants from Williams.
A specific dollar figure was not given in the lawsuit.
Seattle authorities described Williams' 2012 visit to Seattle as a source for numerous alleged crimes, stating that he has outstanding warrants and accusing him of attacking a bar manager with a pool cue, fighting with police and hurling a large rock at a car. Williams is also facing allegations in Los Angeles on a variety of charges, including allegedly spraying a would-be photographer with pepper spray and robbery charges with former label exec Marion "Suge" Knight over a camera they allegedly took from a photographer.
Williams is also facing felony charges related to a 2012 incident in Sacramento, California, where he allegedly hit several people while fleeing police in a three-wheeled vehicle. – Staff Writers
