Katt Williams won an Emmy for his role on “Atlanta” at this year’s show. At the same time Williams was flying to Los Angeles to attend the show, he was due in an Atlanta courtroom.
Sources say Williams didn’t know about the court date because he claims his managers didn’t tell him about it.
As a result, Williams was in L.A. and not in court; the Atlanta judge then issued an arrest warrant.
Williams reportedly says he would’ve chosen court over attending the Emmys and didn’t find out about the arrest warrant in Atlanta until his arrest for allegedly assaulting a driver in Portland, Oregon.
He has been released from jail.
