ARRESTED: Comedian and actor Katt Williams

COMEDIAN AND actor Katt Williams was arrested over the weekend after beating up a female member of staff at a hotel.

The US star will appear in court next month (Aug 18) after he was arrested on suspicion of battery.

Williams, who has recently had a number of run ins with the law, was arrested on Sunday (Jul 24) after an altercation with a woman at the Sportsman's Lodge, a hotel in Sherman Oaks, California, according to TMZ.

The My Wife and Kids actor, 44, is said to have punched the woman who works at the hotel, and she had visible injuries when police arrived on the scene.

The comedian was in custody in a Los Angeles jail before posting bail for $20,000 (£15,200), according to the gossip website.

TROUBLED: Katt Williams has been arrested on a myriad of occasions in recent years

In March, the former Wild N Out star was arrested after becoming embroiled in a fist fight with a 17-year-old boy.

He was also picked up on charges of aggravated assault, terrorist threats, and false imprisonment after police found evidence suggesting he had ordered a woman to beat his bodyguard with a baseball bat while he threatened the man's life in late February.
