After a rough weekend in Seattle, troubled comedian Katt Williams announced he is retiring from comedy. While in Seattle he had four incidents that required police attention. He went for a wild ride on a three-wheeler and led cops on a chase, he slapped a Target employee and escaped on an electric cart; he got into an altercation with fans; he chased people with a pool cue at a club and was arrested. The final straw came when he was ejected from several hotels. A tearful Katt tells a reporter he’s had enough.
“I’m just gonna go ahead and announce my retirement from standup, I’m kinda done. This is um…I’ve discussed it with my kids. I wasn’t really gonna do it on a Seattle street, I was going to go to Los Angeles and do it in the offices of ICM or LiveNation.”

She says “After the third or fourth tuna fish sandwich, and after we learned we’d be without power for a week, I called my mother, who lives Uptown. She was okay and hadn’t lost any power, so we ended up going to her house. We were pretty lucky.”
