A police report wasn’t filed, but video footage and witness statements led authorities to press charges, according to Holbrook.Williams, 44, and Luke Wash, 17, were both charged in connection with the fight last week, Gainesville Police Sgt. Kevin Holbrook said Monday.

He added that Wash is also charged as an adult in the case.

Entertainer Katt Williams and a teenager have each been charged with disorderly conduct after fighting each other at an apartment complex, police in metro Atlanta said Monday.

“It’s my understanding that Wash is in custody at the jail and we have made contact with Williams’ attorney and it is our hopes and our understanding that he will be turning himself in,”

Holbrook said.

Attorney Drew Findling said Williams had been doing community service and playing soccer with children at a subsidized housing complex in Gainesville, northeast of Atlanta, when the fight happened.

“It’s a shame because from all accounts from the people we interviewed, his behavior was exemplary the whole day,”

Findling said.

The incident is the latest in a string of legal troubles for the comedian in Georgia.

Officials have said Williams made a threat Feb. 28 while an acquaintance beat the bodyguard with a baseball bat and choked him.

In another incident, Williams also was charged with battery on Feb. 29 after a fight at a pool supply store in Gainesville, authorities have said.

“At the time of these new charges he was actually out on a conditional bond and subsequently he has an arrest order from superior court revoking his bond,”

Holbrook said.

It’s unclear if Wash has an attorney.
