Today in Tha Wire, I hate to say it but we may never get a chance to see Katt Williams back on top of his game.  When I tell you he was my absolute favorite comedian, that's an understatement.  At this point, he's been arrested so many times nobody can keep up. Over the past two years it's been one crazy thing after another.  He's constantly in the news for assaulting or attacking someone and this time around is no different.

The once celebrated entertainer got himself arrested at Spondivits restaurant in Atlanta.  According to police reports, Katt threw a salt shaker and hit the manager after he was told he and his family couldn't sit in a reserved area.  The incident went down yesterday(Thursday April 28) when Williams went to the restraunt with his family. Once at the venue they requested a reserved sitting area, but it was already taken so they were denied access.

That obviously didn't sit well with the embattled entertainer and that's when things went left.  Katt allegedly picked up a salt shaker and hurled it at the manager, striking them hard enough to draw blood.  Police were called at about 10 p.m. with reports of a fight, but of course Katt left the scene before they arrived.  A short time later they found him eating at Waffle House nearby.

Atlanta police said the comedian was arrested without incident and bonded out. An that's about all we know for now.

In other news after 23-years of fighting to gain his citizenship, rap icon Slick Rick, is officially a U.S. citizen.  The England born rapper has been deported several times over the years and all do to a 1991 felony charge.  The nightmare began when Rick whose real name is, Ricky Martin Lloyd Walters, hired his first cousin Mark Plummer to be his bodyguard.  At the height of the rappers career Plummer grew greedy and was trying to extort money from him, so he was fired.

Things went from bad to worse with Rick's cousin trying to rob him and threatened to kill him and his mother.  The last straw was when discovered bullet holes in front door.  The next time Rick spotted Plummer in his neighborhood, he took matters into his own hands and shot him and unfortunately passerby. Thankfully, neither of them suffered life-threatening injuries.  As for Slick Rick, he pretty much lost everything.  He pleaded guilty to two counts of attempted murder and other charges and served 5-years in prison.

He was released in 97' and ever since then he's been fighting an uphill legal battle with the U.S. government.  On April 15, 2016, Rick's nightmare ended and he was finally granted U.S. citizenship. It's been a longtime coming and this week the Grammy-nominated Hip-Hop legend announced he's kicking off the “Victory Tour” to celebrate!

This has been a long time coming for me, and I am relieved to finally put this long chapter behind me," the rapper continued. "I want to thank everyone – my family, friends and fans – who have supported me and stuck by me over these 23 years. I am truly blessed."
