WOODLAND HILLS (CBSLA.com) — Comedian Katt Williams was arrested in Woodland Hills Tuesday after he failed to show up for a court date in Sacramento.

The 51-year-old “Scary Movie 5” star, whose real name is Micah Sierra Williams, was taken into custody at his home in the 22500 block of Quinta Road on a judge’s bench warrant.

He was later released on $100,500 bail.

Williams, who has been arrested seven times in the last 26 months, missed an arraignment on charges related to riding a three-wheel motorcycle on a sidewalk in Sacramento.

The comedian told TMZ he was a no-show because he had to make another court appearance, which involved custody of his children.
