Another celebrity making a last ditch attempt to climb up our 2012 ‘fallen from grace’ list is the comedian Katt Williams. Adding to his list of recent misdemeanours, the controversial comic has now been arrested on suspicion of child endangerment and possession of a stolen gun.

According to a report from Fox News, LA police officer Norma Eisenman, Katt was taken into custody on Friday (December 28, 2012), following a welfare check at his home. During the check, the authorities reportedly discovered more than one firearm – one of which had previously been reported as stolen. The LA County Department of Children and Family Services did not state how many children were living at the home and have not clarified whether or not the children were subsequently removed from the abode. Williams has one biological child and seven adopted children.

This isn’t the first time that Williams has found himself on the wrong side of the law, of late. Earlier this month, he was arrested on a felony warrant, relating to a police chase and the previous month, he was accused of hitting another man on the head with a bottle, during a fight. All in all, it has been a tumultuous year for Katt Williams and it seems to have culminated in a pretty shameful ordeal.
