Comedian Katt Williams is scheduled to appear in court Tuesday after an alleged dispute led to his arrest in Palmdale.

The 39-year-old comedian was arrested Saturday on charges of false imprisonment, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

Williams and three women were staying at the house where a man was doing tractor work.

Officials said the women began throwing rocks and wooden sticks at the worker.

The injured worker called his wife to come pick him up. But when they tried to leave, police said Williams blocked the couple's exit with his SUV. That's when the man called 911.

Authorities arrested Williams and the three women.
