After some of the most bizarre behavior to befall a comedian, the 100-city Katt Williams tour has been canceled, LA Weekly has learned.
The L.A.-based comedian had about 90 more stops left but the concert promoter Live Nation pulled the plug this weekend, we were told: It was possible, however, that another company might try take over the rest of the dates.
Williams was detained by cops at least three times in the last few weeks, including this latest arrest over the weekend:
On Friday Yolo County sheriff’s deputies arrested Williams based on a warrant related to a bizarre chase earlier in nearby Sacramento in which the comedian, riding a three-wheeled motorbike, allegedly rode on a sidewalk and failed to stop for cops.
He reportedly posted bail and was out yesterday.
The latest stint in handcuffs comes as some of his supporting talent and staff had quit the tour, the Weekly learned. Those who bailed included comedian John Witherspoon, Gina Yashire, a DJ and at least one personal assistant, we were told.
Some on the crew feared that Williams was surrounding himself with allegedly bad influences, including rap impresario Suge Knight.
Members of the entourage witnessed off-stage assault and were in constant fear of violence, we were told.
