Katt Williams was handed five years on “strict probation” after entering a plea of no contest Thursday in Hall County, GA to assault and battery charges, TMZ reports.
His legal woes legal woes from this particular incident began earlier this year, when the Hall County Sheriff’s Office served a warrant at Williams’ residence as part of an investigation into accusations that his team had choked bodyguard Corey Dixon on Feb. 28, the day before Williams was arrested on a separate misdemeanor battery charge in Hall, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.
One acquaintance, Tatiana Smith, 24, allegedly choked Dixon and assaulted him with a baseball bat.
The alleged assault occurred after the bodyguard refused to “engage in criminal activity,” sources say. When police arrived at the home, they reportedly found his stash of guns and ganja. He was charged with aggravated assault, terroristic threats, false imprisonment and felony possession of marijuana. He was indicted in March on those charges and others.
Conditions of his probation include paying $7,500 in restitution to the victim and perform 100 hours of community service, submitting to treatment and evaluations for anger management, substance abuse and impulse control. He can’t come anywhere around the bodyguard and is banned from Hall and Dawson counties.
On top of that, he must surrender all the guns cops found, plus the almost $16,000 they seized.
