Embattled comedian Katt Williams failed to show up at his arraignment hearing in Seattle in light of several run-ins with the police last weekend. Williams was the subject of several reports involving altercations around the city.

Thomas McAllister, Katt's lawyer, appeared in court on Thursday, telling the judge that his client didn't believe his appearance was mandatory, citing information from a Seattle Times article. It was revealed that Katt is currently back in California.

According to the Times, Katt is due back in court next week, where he will face charges for striking a man over the head with a microphone while performing Friday night, throwing chairs at fans, and threatening a bar manager with a pool cue over the weekend.
