Georgia authorities say comedian Micah "Katt" Williams has been arrested after he threatened to kill his bodyguard.

Hall County sheriff's Deputy Nicole Bailes say in a statement that a hearing is set for 2 p.m. Wednesday in Gainesville, Atlanta, after the Tuesday arrest.

The statement says Williams threatened the man while an acquaintance beat him with a baseball bat.

Jail records show Williams faces charges of terroristic threats, false imprisonment and aggravated assault. The records don't list an attorney who could be reached for comment.

On Feb. 29, Williams was charged with battery after arguing with a worker at a swimming pool supply store in Gainesville. The worker told deputies Williams went behind the counter and punched him.

The 44-year-old comedian has appeared in films including "Friday After Next."
