Comedian Katt Williams' show in Indianapolis canceled more than week after arrest in police chase

Williams arrested in California

INDIANAPOLIS - Katt Williams' show in Indianapolis this weekend has been canceled more than a week after the comedian was arrested on a felony warrant related to a police chase.

Williams, who was set to perform at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Sunday, was arrested the night of Dec. 7 in northern California.

The California Highway Patrol said Williams fled officers on a three-wheeled motorcycle on Nov. 25 after being spotted driving on a downtown Sacramento sidewalk.

Williams was asked to stop but refused, leading to the pursuit, during which he nearly hit five people, police said.

Williams was released on bond after his arrest last week.

He angered fans in Kansas City, Mo., on Friday when a scheduled performance there was canceled just 15 minutes before the comedian was set to take the stage.

Officials with Bankers Life Fieldhouse gave no reason for the cancelation of Sunday's show but said ticketholders are eligible for a full refund.
