GAINESVILLE, Ga. (AP) – Police say entertainer Katt Williams and a teenager he fought at a Georgia apartment complex have each been charged with disorderly conduct.

Gainesville Police Sgt. Kevin Holbrook say Williams and 17-year-old Luke Wash were both charged in the fight from last week. Wash is also charged as an adult.

Holbrook says a police report wasn’t filed, but video footage and witness statements led authorities to press charges.

Attorney Drew Findling says Williams had been doing community service at the subsidized housing complex in Gainesville, northeast of Atlanta. He says Williams will handle the matter in an orderly and professional way.

Authorities say Williams also faces charges for threatening a bodyguard’s life in early March and for fighting with a store employee in February.

It’s unclear if Wash has an attorney.
