*In the midst of the current Katt Williams/Kevin Hart drama, TMZ is reporting that five women have come forward to claim that Katt and his crew held them at gunpoint.
The women say they crossed paths with the comedian and his 15-person entourage at 2:30 a.m. Sunday in downtown Atlanta. According to TMZ, they asked for a photo, but when Katt noticed one of them filming, he went off.
The women say he punched one of them — which started an all out brawl, until Williams took out a gun and pointed it at them. They claim he and his entourage took all their phones. One woman says she managed to grab a phone from their car and dialed 911.
When cops arrived Katt told officers a different story. He claims the women were harassing him, and one of them tried to snatch a chain from his neck … and that’s when he punched in self-defense. He does admit taking out a gun, but only because he heard one of the women mention a gun.
In the end, police made no arrests because there were no independent witnesses and no injuries — but they are continuing to investigate.
The 5 women have lawyered up and plan to hold a news conference later Wednesday.
Katt was arrested the next day outside an Atlanta suburb for allegedly punching an employee in a pool supply store.
