Katt Williams Reportedly Pulls Gun On Heckler At Comedy Store
Deputies responded to West Hollywood's Comedy Store with guns drawn last night after Katt Williams allegedly threatened someone with a gun.
Williams, who has a spotty legal record when it comes to both guns and comedy clubs, reportedly drew a gun on a heckler who was "talking smack about the comedian's height and race," according to TMZ. An eyewitness says Williams wasn't on stage at the time.
Deputies responded to a 9-1-1 call reporting a man with a gun at the comedy club on the Sunset Strip. The West Hollywood Sheriff's Department responded with six cars and guns drawn, but Williams was nowhere to be found.
But it sounds like things were chaotic both inside and outside the club. Comedian Chelsea Peretti tweeted that she was stuck inside:

And bystanders posted photos of the deputies with their guns ready to go:
Sheriff's detectives told TMZ and Patch they were investigating the incident. No warrant has been issued yet.
UPDATE 2:30 p.m.: Williams is denying he had a gun at the club and he tells TMZ that he was the one who was victimized. He's saying that four Crips verbally attacking him, and then followed him to his car and physically assaulted him. He believes that the gang members called 9-1-1 on him.
