Celebrity mugshot: Katt Williams arrested in Atlanta


It’s bad enough that Katt Williams was arrested Monday morning for burglary and criminal trespassing in metro Atlanta.

But the comedian − normally known for his short stature and straight hair − is even more infamous for the mugshot he took in Coweta County.

With that Kool-Aid smile on his face, we can only imagine what’s going through his head − maybe he’s thinking of the inevitable jokes that will be told about him. Maybe he came up with a few of his own. (We’re secretly hoping that Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock toss a few into the mix.)

Either way, blogs, radio stations, email blasts and Twitter are on fire about his jailhouse pose. Many wonder how the comic, born Micah Williams, could be arrested for burglary in the first place. Ry_Terrence Tweeted: “Katt Williams smiling in his mugshot?! Like he at Disneyland! Jail isn’t an achievement.”

Katt’s lawyer, William Briggs, told TMZ that Williams was a guest, not a burglar, and that the false accusations are the result of a disagreement.

Others think it’s sad. KyonaCook on Twitter said: “I feel sorry for Katt Williams, people don’t do crazy things for nothing. Pray for him, instead of laughing at him.”

But many, many, many others are just undone by the photo: “I hope he does a standup routine about this,” Stoychers Tweeted.

Williams is scheduled to be arraigned later this afternoon. Check for more updates.

Celeb mugshots are nothing new. Check out our celebrity mugshot gallery and tell us which photo is most memorable.

Who has the best (worst?) mugshot?

OMG Nooooooooooooooo.. Who is he? Just playing. This is really unfortunate that celebrities can’t seem to escape these types of circumstances even after their star has risen (somewhat in this case..) I wonder why he was burgalarizing and trespassing in Coweta County? Maybe this is fake and he was wrongly jailed, “LIKE THE CHICAGO POLICEMAN” WHO GIVING OUT FAKE DUI’S.

I read about it on that site you have to decode to read the actual story. It’s a really good piece once you decode it –

He is, without a doubt, scrouging around for more drugs. Meth, Coke, Crack, whatever. One look tells the tale.
He better be glad it was not my home…

I’m going to give Katt Williams the benefit of the doubt; burglary? Naw, man – something else has to be up with this. Anybody that short with a pressed out hair don’t burglarize; because that would make for some interesting jail time. Who knows what the whole story is, but I’m sure we’ll here all about it in his next stand-up routine. This type of comedic material is priceless. It’s gonna be good, can’t wait to see it!

Thanks Phil!! Micah aka Katt is my family member and before people begin assuming what took place, lets wait for the burden of proof to fall where it may! Micah definitely has no need to rob, burglarize or take anything from anyone. Now the question most likely should be is what did someone owe him that he felt the need to take?!?!?! Contrary to popular relief, he is not broke. Haven’t you ever had a bad hair day?

This is so sad! I really like Katt Williams and hate that he is going through this right now. I also hate to read articles where people make fun of celebrities. I don’t think it is amusing to poke at the demise of others. Just because they are in the public eye doesn’t mean they don’t have feelings too. I don’t know what is going on with Katt but I pray he can get through it as he is a very talented comedian. I also pray for his kids.

How do rich people with a staff and personal assistance have a “bad hair day”?! You can afford to look good everyday and you should!

We all know there’s three sides to every story. His side, the accuser side and the truth. I just can’t wait to hear what really happen.

Everyone has a bad hair day. They just announced on the news that he was filming a movie in Coweta County so just maybe his character required a bad hair do. We should never assume that just because people have money that their lives are normal. We should never assume anyway!!

Why would you hang out in Coweta County? Sh*t he should be locked up!!!!!

No one can judge a person. If you were not there then you dont know. How can u say someone is a drug addict if you dont personally know them. Just because Katt is a celebrity does not mean his life is perfect. I pray that he gets thru the trials he is facing at this moment.

Everyone should realize that when you go to jail, they force you to take a shower before going to your cell. It’s no wonder his hair looks the way it does. He just got it wet.

Everyone hasn’t been to jail, so we wouldn’t have the natural assumption that most of the scum that visit jail on a frequent basis, are forced to shower.

And Katt loves weed, don’t hide it people. Pray for him all you want, the man loves to smoke. I saw him high in the IHOP in Newnan a few weeks ago around 2AM, with all his buddies. I don’t have to personally know him to say he’s got issues. I can see idiots on the streets begging for change and know they have an issue without personally knowing them.

Me and my husband got into a big fight in OUR HOME and the computer monitor was broken. They charged us with criminal tresspass. It was crazy!! Police can charge you with whatever they want, but it will likely be reduced to something else.

Please do NOT rush to judgment. There are over 2.2 million stories of those who are incarcerated or have been in trouble and at least 50 % of them were pre-judged by the media and the public. Kat, we’d love to have you for an interview for our magazine or radio show. Keep smiling.

Yet ANOTHER thug! My gosh. Atlanta is just going to get worse and worse until we can get rid of “them.”

worst mugshot of all time is mikey jackson, it is hideous, he could be the star of a horror flick, and he could do it w/o any make up, to bad the cops didn’t make him take off the crappy wig, he would have looked even worse if that’s possible

While I am no Katt Williams fan, it was so interesting to see all of the racist a backwater comments from those that were wuick to rush to judgement. Williams had permission from the owner of the home to be there. The “white” caretaker just felt compelled to call the police on Williams. Get the facts before rushing to judgement!!!!

First, stop dissing Coweta County it is the new celebrity hang out spot in case you didn’t know you Atlantic Station oldies! Just watch BET’s “Still Standing”, and a few other shows are currently being shot here!!! and secondly, I am sure wheter KAT’s is legit or not.. it will be part of a routine sooner or later.

Danni “rich people” are normal everyday people just like you! Maybe he didn’t feel like having his hair straightened on that day. This is the problem, people want to ASSUME that because someone is famous they don’t have the same vices as the next. Some days I don’t feel like makeup and may want to throw my hair back in a ponytail. This is life. Those who see it any other way are living in a fantasy world.

So what he smokes weed!!! So does the majority of America! That doesn’t make him a loser or a bad person. We’ll leave that argument for another day. What we must do is respect that there are two sides to every story and that Micah is innocent until proven guilty. Katt Williams is not a “thug”(which in my opinion is a racist statement). He is however is HUMAN!!! Lay off….

Well I just feel that nobody needs to judge except the jude. Nobody knows what this man is going through. Also no one knows the real behind eveything, so shut up and grow up. The world would be a much better place if everyone handled and minded their own business. I love Katt and I’m standing behind him 100 percent! HATERS!

I dont think that being arrested is something to smile about -rather you committed the crime or not-. Katt Williams is a great entertainer, and needs to think before he act. Its funny how people can see other people flaws or mishaps but dont take the time to look at themselves

Katt Williams is one of the brilliant and talented comedians to ever perform. I think that it is tragic and upsetting that he has retired. He was definitely one of a kind, and let’s pray for his safe return to comedy.
