Comedian Katt Williams is breathing a sigh of relief after the New York D.A. decided not to prosecute him on gun possession charges.

From Nydailynews.com:

Hip-hop comedian Katt Williams dodged a bullet Thursday when Manhattan prosecutors dropped gun charges against him.

The raunchy funnyman was arrested Nov. 6, 2008, after cops allegedly spotted three guns in his 10-person posse’s convoy.

A probe found the weapons were registereed out-of-state to two of Williams’ security guards, sources said.

The guards still face charges, but weapons possession charges against Williams were dropped.

“We are very pleased the district attorney did the right thing here,” said his lawyer, Charles Ross.

The 35-year-old comic, whose real name is Micah Williams, was arrested on the way to his show at Carnegie Hall and managed to make it to the stage after posting bail.

He was admitted to a psychiatric facility a week later and stopped performing at the end of 2008. He was in court yesterday but didn’t speak.

“He is doing great,” Ross said. “Audiences will be laughing at Katt Williams’ concerts for years to come.”
