Comedian Katt Williams arrested for assault in Oakland

OAKLAND, Calif.

Williams was taken into custody at the Courtyard Marriott on Broadway Wednesday night after an 18-year-old Berkeley man told police he'd been hit in the head by a bottle thrown from Katt's tour vehicle, parked outside the hotel.

He was in the Bay Area for a Friday night performance at the Oracle Arena.

The 41-year-old wasn't jailed. Police say questioning continues.
