Atlanta comedian Katt Williams is being held in Coweta County jail, charged with burglary and criminal trespassing, a deputy confirmed.

He will be arraigned at 4 p.m. Monday, when bond will be set, the deputy said.

Williams, whose birth name is Micah Williams, was arrested early this morning — almost a year to the day of his arrest in New York City for gun possession. Those charges were dropped in June.

According to the Smoking Gun web site, a Coweta homeowner told authorities the comedian entered their residence and stole jewelry and other items.

Williams has been in and out of trouble this year. Shortly following his arrest last November Williams was admitted to a South Carolina psychiatric ward. His publicist at the time blamed his erratic behavior on exhaustion.

Williams’ credits include the comedy “First Sunday” and the Eddie Murphy film, “Norbit.”  He also headlined an HBO special, “Katt Williams: Pimp Chronicles Pt. 1,” shot in Atlanta.
