Micah "Katt" Williams, the troubled comedian who attacked a Woodland Target store employee late last year, was banned from the department store and ordered to serve a year of informal probation as part of a plea entered this week.

Williams' attorney entered a plea of no contest to misdemeanor battery on the comedian's behalf Tuesday in Yolo Superior Court, according to the Yolo County District Attorney's Office.

A judge ordered Williams to stay away from the store employee, barred Williams from possessing a firearm for 10 years and directed him to pay a $200 fine, according to information on the district attorney's website.

The Nov. 25 incident went viral on YouTube and was one in a string of bizarre incidents involving Williams in late 2012.

They included Williams commandeering a three-wheeled motorcycle near Capitol Park in downtown Sacramento earlier on Nov. 25, nearly running down five pedestrians as well as misdemeanor arrests in Seattle earlier in November.
