In late Dec. 2012, comedian and actor Katt Williams was arrested in his Woodland Hills, Calif. home on suspicion of felony child endangerment. At the time, numerous guns and illegal drugs were found in the house that authorities felt created a safety hazard for his children.
Williams was released after spending a day in Valley Jail in Van Nuys in lieu of a $100,000 bail.
Earlier this morning though, we learned from TMZ that Williams caught a break in that case and will not face criminal child endangerment charges, even though a marijuana stash and guns were present in the home while his kids were living there.
The Los Angeles District Attorney decided that the case against Williams wasn’t winnable for a few reasons:
First, Katt insists his kids couldn't get at the guns because they were locked up.
On top of that, there were so many people living in the house there was no way of tying Katt to the marijuana -- and reasonable assumptions don't count.
Reportedly, Katt Williams will soon be appearing in court to receive an informal warning and get some counseling.
