A deputy at the jail in Coweta County, southwest of Atlanta, confirmed Williams was being held there and that a magistrate was expected to set bond at an arraignment Monday afternoon. The deputy did not have access to a police report to provide more details.
Williams' real name is Micah Williams. He's known for his appearances on BET and HBO, including an HBO special, "Katt Williams: Pimp Chronicles Part 1," which was shot in Atlanta.
He also had roles in the movies "Friday After Next" and "Norbit."
It was unclear Monday morning if Williams had an attorney.
