Last Sunday, Williams led police in Sacramento, Calif., on a bizarre chase throughout the city as he drove on the wrong side of the road on a three-wheeled motorcycle. Shortly after the chase, Williams was seen entering a local Target.
Security camera footage shows Williams talking to an employee at a cash register and then, completely unprovoked, slapping the young employee in the face.
And in yet another bizarre move, Williams reportedly fled the scene in a motorized shopping cart before getting back on his three-wheeled motorcycle. Williams was not arrested following the incident.
The bizarre video of Williams slapping a Target employee comes only a week after Williams was sued by his own fans for a botched standup performance in Oakland, Calif.
The class-action lawsuit targets both Williams and his show’s promoter, Live Nation, for a performance in Oakland on Nov. 16, according to TMZ. The lawsuit was filed by Brian Herline on Nov. 22.
According to the suit, Williams was onstage for all of 10 minutes before storming offstage. Reportedly, Williams delivered almost no comedic material during that time, but instead "confronted a heckler, took his clothes off, and attempted to fight at least three audience members."
Apparently, fans were extremely disappointed by the “nonperformance,” which explains the legal action being taken against Williams. In recent years, Williams has become known for bizarre behavior at his standup shows.
The slapping video and lawsuit are only a small part of Williams’ current legal troubles. Two days before the aborted performance, the comedian was arrested on suspicion of battery in Oakland after allegedly getting into a fight at a club and hitting a man over the head with a glass bottle, as noted by TMZ.
