Remember reports of Katt Williams allegedly attacking a restaurant worker with a salt shaker in 2016? Well, that waiter is now suing the comedian to pay for his medical expenses, impairment of earning capacity and past and future lost earnings.
According to new legal documents obtained by The Blast, Kevin Oliveira claims that Williams attacked him while he was working at Spondivits restaurant near Atlanta in April 2016 after he asked Williams and his friend to wait for a table.
Oliveira says Williams became upset, grabbed a glass salt shaker and threw it at him, striking him in the face.
According to the filing, Olveira was rushed to the hospital by ambulance and required 10 stitches to treat a large gash to his lips and mouth.
His lawsuit seeks unspecified damages.
As previously reported, Williams was arrested following the incident. It was the latest of several brushes with the law in 2016, following arrests for punching a pool store employee in the face, fighting with a teen in an apartment complex and threatening his own bodyguard.
