Katt offers dog after family’s pet is shot
TMZ is reporting a strange little story out of Arizona involving comedian/rapper/actor Katt Williams.
During a tour bus stop last month in the town of Williams, near the Grand Canyon, one of Williams’ bodyguards was bitten by a dog, and then shot the dog twice, killing him.
The German shepherd — named Lester — was a retired police dog that had gotten loose during a walk with his owners, and ended up in the same Jack-in-the-Box parking lot where Williams’ bus stopped.
After the shooting, Williams told the family that the bodyguard would be fired, then he stepped into his bus and came back out with an 8-week-old puppy, reportedly a mastiff.
Williams offered the puppy to the family to replace the dead dog.
The family accepted, then posed for pictures with Williams.
The family told TMZ they named the new dog Bella, and that, though they were “devastated” by the death of Lester, they appreciated Williams taking responsibility and offering them the new pup.
Police responded, interviewed Williams and others, and opted to file no charges.
