Police urge Katt Williams to get in touch

Police in Los Angeles have urged troubled comedian KATT WILLIAMS to get in touch and tell his "side of the story" after he was accused of pulling out a gun in a comedy club this week (beg30Jun14). Cops descended on the city's Comedy Store venue after a 911 call suggested the comedian had brandished a weapon in the club on Tuesday (01Jul14) night. Williams, real name Micah Williams, had already left by the time police arrived at the scene, and TMZ.com reports the star has denied claims he drew a firearm and threatened a heckler, insisting he was attacked by a group of men. Police have launched an investigation into the incident, and they are now hoping to talk to Williams after the alleged victim gave a statement. Sergeant Dave Valentine of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department says, "He's (Williams is) being investigated, preliminarily, for threatening someone with a weapon... (He) wasn't performing. He was just there, but he was gone when we arrived. The victim filed a report. Obviously we'd like to hear Mr. Williams' side of the story... We're not sure if it was a heckler... If we get a call of a man with a gun, we're sending everyone we have."
