The video of Katt Williams sucker punching someone much younger than him and being wrestled to the ground was already alarming when it surfaced late Tuesday night, but now that we know how old Katt’s opponent was, it’s even worse. Luke Wash is only 17 years old and his scuffle with Katt has brought yet another criminal investigation the comedian’s way.
Daily Mail caught up with the teenager in the same spot where the incident occurred and got Luke’s side of the story. According to Wash, they were playing soccer and things spiraled out of control. “We were playing a game of soccer and I just thought it was a soccer game, but stuff happens in sports,” he said. “He took me over to a secluded area and asked me to hit him and I was like, ‘I’m not just going to hit you. You want to square up?’ And then he sucker-punched me, so I did what I did.”
Wash, who’s face was visibly swollen from the punch, revealed that he’d wrestled for two years and that he tried to shake Katt’s hand afterwards, but was refused. According to the report, police are reviewing Williams’ bail stemming from previous incidents to see if he violated the order. If so, his bail ultimately could be revoked.
Another, longer video of the incident has surfaced on Facebook, shedding more light on just what happened. In the video below, the 42-year-old can be seen playing soccer with a group of kids, just as Wash described. At one point the man behind the camera says, “I’m surprised (Katt) he ain’t fighting nobody,” to which someone responds, almost appalled, “Boy, who is he going to fight out here?”
Around the two-minute mark, Williams and Wash are seen having a conversation before Katt walks away and the teen trails him closely. That eventually leads to the fight a little more than a minute later.
