Comedian Katt Williams was arrested Monday on a battery charge after a shopkeeper told authorities he was punched during an argument, the Gainesville Times reported. He was booked into the Hall County jail after a fracas at a pool supply company but didn’t offer much in the way of explanation.

Gainesville police officers responded to an assault call at a pool supply store around 11:30 a.m. and found Williams outside “lying on the ground with his hands behind his back as though he was ready to go to jail,” Sgt. Kevin Holbrook said.
A store employee told officers Williams, who was in the store with two women, began arguing with the employee and threw a pair of goggles at him, Holbrook said. Williams then went behind the counter and punched the employee at least once, Holbrook said.
