Now, officials have taken the matter into their own hands, having charged each man with disorderly conduct. While no police report was filed by either party, the viral video footage prompted officials to press charges themselves, especially since the incident involved a minor.

“It’s my understanding that Wash is in custody at the jail and we have made contact with Williams’ attorney and it is our hopes and our understanding that he will be turning himself in,” Gainesville Police Sergeant Kevin Holbrook said Monday.

Wash, 17, will be tried as an adult, and that another video of the fight has surface, showing Katt being followed by the teenager, who then made the first move in engaging in physical behavior with the comedian.
