Katt Williams under investigation for allegedly pulling gun on patron during verbal dispute at comedy show

Cops want to speak with short-fused funnyman Katt Williams after he allegedly pulled a gun on someone at a comedy show in West Hollywood.

Williams, 40, was at the Comedy Store on the legendary Sunset Strip around 2 a.m. Wednesday when he allegedly “brandished” the weapon during a verbal dispute, police confirmed to the Daily News.

“He’s being investigated, preliminarily, for threatening someone with a weapon,” Sgt. Dave Valentine with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said.

More than a half dozen black and white cruisers responded to a 911 call of a man with a gun, he said. “(Williams) wasn’t performing. He was just there, but he was gone when we arrived,” Sgt. Valentine said. “The victim filed a report. Obviously we’d like to hear Mr. Williams’ side of the story.”

Unidentified eyewitnesses told TMZ.com that Williams was inside the club when the alleged victim started baiting the “Norbit” and “First Sunday” star with comments about his height and race.

“We’re not sure if it was a heckler,” Sgt. Valentine said Wednesday, confirming that deputies took the call seriously and raced to the scene, some with weapons drawn.
