Comedian Katt Williams fails to show up for scheduled event at Toyota Center

HOUSTON

Toyota Center officials issued a statement late Friday stating the event was canceled due to circumstances beyond their control.

On Thursday, authorities issued a felony arrest warrant for Williams related to a police chase in California. The Sacramento County Sheriff's Department says the warrant issued Thursday is for reckless driving.

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

The CHP said Williams was asked to stop and refused, leading to the pursuit. The CHP says Williams nearly hit five people during the chase.

Williams' representatives did not immediately respond to an email from the Associate Press seeking comment.

Anyone who had bought tickets to the Friday performance at the Toyota Center can get a refund at their original point of purchase, event officials say. Credit card purchases will automatically be refunded.

Any questions about refunds can be directed to Toyota Center Tickets customer service at 1-866-4-HOUTIX.
