The fuck was he thinking?
ATLANTA — Comedian and rapper Katt Williams remained jailed Monday in suburban Atlanta after police said they arrested the entertainer for breaking into a home and stealing thousands of dollars worth of jewelry and coins.
Williams, who police say is 38, is charged with burglary and criminal trespassing, according to Coweta County Sheriff's Office Maj. James Yarbrough.
A Coweta County magistrate set bond at more than $41,000 Monday afternoon. A detention officer at Coweta County Jail confirmed Williams remained in custody after the hearing.
Yarbrough said the Sunday night incident happened at a home in Newnan, about 38 miles southwest of Atlanta. Yarbrough said the victim — identified in a police report as Daniel Broach — called police around 9 p.m. to report the comedian broke into his home and stole items.
Williams had a crowbar when he entered and is accused of taking $3,555 in jewelry and collectable coins.
Williams, whose real name is Micah S. Katt Williams, is known for his roles in the movies "Friday After Next" and "Norbit." His comedy DVD, "Katt Williams: Pimpadelic," was no. 8 in the nation for sales during the week of Oct. 30, according to Nielsen/VideoScan.
But lately the entertainer has gained as much attention for criminal troubles as for his quips.
He was briefly jailed in November 2008 after New York police said officers discovered three guns in Williams' car after pulling him over for driving without a license plate. Manhattan prosecutors dropped weapons charges in July after running into problems proving their case.
A judge sentenced Williams to three years probation in 2006 after he pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor count of carrying a concealed firearm. Authorities had arrested Williams on Nov. 6 at Los Angeles International Airport after finding a gun in his briefcase.
Williams lives in Woodland Hills, Calif.
Yarbrough said police believe the entertainer was in Georgia working on a film.
