Comedian and one of 2012's tabloid darlings Katt Williams is at it again, this time getting into trouble with the law for child endangerment. Still, the comedian has a defence (or something like it), announcing after his release from jail last night: "how do you keep kids safe without guns?" How indeed...

TMZ first reported the news that Williams was placed into police custody late last night (Dec 28) for allegedly endangering his four children. His house was raided by police whereupon they found numerous firearms and illicit substances, with his children taken into custody for their own safety along with Williams. Apparently, the items were seized by police who then placed Williams into familiar surroundings with a $100,000 bail on his head.

After his release on bail yesterday, Williams was confronted by TMZ outside the police station he was being held in, where he gave his side to the story. He told the gossip site that the guns, which were seized, had been kept in a secure and locked box, adding, "If the police come in and raid my place and break into my gun boxes, you're gonna find guns! I'm not in a gang, what difference does it make?"

He also admitted to being in possession of marijuana, but lamented that "weed is not a drug."
