    Comedian Katt Williams was arrested on suspicion of assaulting a  man outside a hotel in downtown Oakland on Wednesday night, police said  today.

    Williams, who is scheduled to perform at Oakland's Oracle Arena on  Friday night, was arrested after a man told police that he had suffered a  head wound during a confrontation with Williams outside the Courtyard  Marriott Hotel in the 900 block of Broadway at about 8 p.m. Wednesday.

    The man was transported to a hospital, where he was treated for  his injury, which was not life-threatening. He was later released.

    Investigators interviewed Williams and witnesses to the incident,  and then released Williams from custody pending further investigation, police  said.
