Comedian Katt Williams was admitted to Tuomey Regional Medical Center in Sumter, South Carolina to undergo a pyschiatric evaluation.
The day's bizarre events began with a call to police early yesterday morning. The comedian, known for appearances on MTV's "Wild 'n Out" and BET's "Comic View" has made media reports recently for exhibiting erratic behavior, including not showing for an appearance on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" in New York on Nov. 4 and being arrested on weapons charges later that week after a traffic stop. On Friday, he turned up in Sumter and allegedly underwent a mental health evaluation for a possible hospital commitment, at the urging of local family members. This was after run-ins with both city and county law enforcement.
Sumter Police Department Maj. Perry Herod said officers responded to a call in reference to suspicious behavior by Williams, 35, on Friday morning at the Mount Vernon Inn.
"And officers did talk with him, and then my understanding is he went on his own to Tuomey Hospital," Herod said.
"Basically we just received a call in reference to a possible suspicious person, but that's the extent of the dealings we had with him," said Sumter Police Chief Patty Patterson.
Patterson said Williams was trying to acquire a room at the motel when hotel employees called at around 8:30 a.m. due to his strange attire: a bathrobe and a towel wrapped around his head. After determining no criminal activity was taking place, officers left.
The very lengthy write up can be found in the local paper.
My prayers are most definetly with Katt @ this time....Hopefully he can bounce back brand new!
