Katt WilliamsManhattan prosecutors have dropped gun charges against comedian Katt Williams. The comedian was arrested last November when police spotted three guns in his convoy. A representative from the DA’s office said prosecutors dismissed the case against Williams because they couldn’t “prove the charges beyond a reasonable doubt,” according to New York’s Daily News. An investigation found that the guns were registered out-of-state to two of Williams’ security guards. The guards will still face charges.

Defense lawyer Charles Ross said he was “pleased that the DA’s office did the right thing.” Williams was admitted to a psychiatric facility a week after his arrest, citing exhaustion. He took a break from performing at the end of 2008.
