nydailynews.com – Comedian Katt Williams allegedly lost his cool and hurled a glass salt shaker at a Georgia restaurant worker’s face, causing a “severe” gash, a new lawsuit claims.
Plaintiff Kevin Oliveira says the assault took place at Spondivits Restaurant near Atlanta after Williams became “annoyed and irate” that his group would have to wait for a table.
Oliveira says witnesses saw the salt shaker blast him in the mouth.
First responders rushed Oliveira to Atlanta Medical Center by ambulance, and it took “approximately 10 stitches” to repair the damage, the lawsuit claims.
“As a direct and proximate result of defendant’s criminal action, plaintiff Kevin Oliveira has medical expenses, bruises, soreness, loss of wages, emotional anxiety and distress,” the lawsuit first reported by Courthouse News Service alleges. “Defendant’s act was done knowingly, willingly and with malicious intent.”
Oliveira’s lawyer Rickey Richardson declined to comment when reached by the Daily News on Monday.
Williams’ Atlanta lawyer told The News that the accusation is “an obvious attempt at a money grab.”
The lawsuit, filed Thursday in Fulton County, claims the incident happened in April 2016.
In April 2017, Williams took a no-jail plea deal in his Beverly Hills robbery case involving jailed music mogul Suge Knight.
You’re damn skippy we’re going to discuss this on the podcast. If this happened in 2016 that means it had to have gone down during that 3 month stretch where Katt took numerous L’s. This is my favorite one he took during that time though. Yes that’s right…that’s Katt Williams being put in a rear naked choke hold by a kid.
