Comedian Katt Williams was arrested in Oakland, Calif., on Wednesday night after a man told police that the entertainer hit him over the head with a bottle.

 

Authorities say the 41-year-old Williams was briefly taken into custody on suspicion of assault after the apparent victim said he was attacked aboard a tour bus that was parked outside a downtown hotel.

 

Williams was released after investigators questioned him and several witnesses. Calls to representatives for Williams were not immediately returned.

 

Police said the man was treated at a hospital for a cut to his head. His name has not been released.

 

Williams is known for his HBO special, "Katt Williams: Pimp Chronicles Pt. 1," and movie roles, including "Friday After Next" and "Norbit."

 

He is scheduled to perform in Oakland on Friday.
