Comedian Katt Williams and two others were indicted today by a grand jury for aggravated assault, among other charges, connected to a previous incident.

The indictment claims that Corey Dixon, a bodyguard, was assaulted with a wooden bat Feb. 28 in Hall County.

Lena Christine Smith and Tatiana Shaquaese Smith face charges as well, which include false imprisonment and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

Magistrate Court Judge Elizabeth Reisman presided over Thursday morning’s proceedings. Bond was set for Williams at $500.

According to the disorderly conduct warrant, Williams was accused of using “abusive words which incited an immediate breach of the peace and resulted in a fight.”

Williams bonded out of the Hall County Jail on Thursday afternoon.

“My understanding is that Ms. (Lena) Smith had no involvement in any type of altercation, and I am hopeful that she will be found not guilty at the time that the case is presented for trial,” defense attorney Chandelle Summer said.

Tatiana Smith’s attorney Steven Frey said he had just received a copy of the indictment when reached for comment Thursday afternoon.

“We plan on vigorously defending this. She’s not guilty of anything,” he said.

An attempt to reach Williams’ attorney Drew Findling for comment was unsuccessful.

Jointly, the Smiths and Williams are charged with aggravated assault, false imprisonment, possession of marijuana and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony

Williams faces a separate charge of terroristic threats.
