Comedian arrested in dispute

Williams

Wettig

Stand-up comedian and actor Katt Williams has been released from jail after being arrested after a dispute at a Seattle bar.

Police say he argued Sunday with another patron at the World Sports Grille, menaced the manager with a pool cue and refused to leave. He’s also accused of flicking a cigarette into a woman’s face through a car window and throwing a rock at the vehicle.

Police say Williams struggled with officers who arrested him and jailed him for investigation of assault, harassment and obstruction. He was released from King County Jail early Monday.

Police say Williams also was involved in an altercation with three fans Friday evening after they tried to take a photo with him. He said they had forced their way into his dressing room.

Extending tour?

Glen Campbell may be wrapping up a goodbye tour but that doesn’t mean he’s done with the stage.

Campbell is considering scheduling more shows next year after playing more than 120 dates in 2012.

The 76-year-old singer has Alzheimer’s disease and has begun to lose his memory. He put out his final studio album, “Ghost on the Canvas,” in 2011 and embarked on the tour with family members and close friends serving in his band and staffing the tour.
