As with yesterday, the basics were featured in Megan's Morning News, but all the little details demand their own post.
Part one, from the Seattle Times:
The Courtyard Seattle Downtown Lake Union Marriott kicked Williams out Monday night. A hotel employee said he was kicked out because several second-floor guests complained about the stench of marijuana coming from his room. The employee said it also smelled like he was burning incense along with it, and several people on the floor complained the smell was entering their rooms. “It’s bad,” the employee said. “After cleaning and opening windows, it still smells.”
Part two, covering Williams' forced exit from the hotel, during which he said a ton of amazing things to a KOMO News cameraman.
About his plan to offer $301,000 cash to stay on the Washington State Ferry Rhododendron with his family and staff until his Thursday court date:
"If they will accept our bid... I will take me and my whole staff on that boat because I still have a court date four days from now and can't leave and I've been kicked out of four hotels in two days and I've been arrested by three different sets of officers four different times detained by two sets of officers. I can stay there [on the ferry] and my family can be there and my dogs can be there and my whole staff can be there until we get done suing Seattle for this $50 million that I want for crippling my reputation as a father and a black man and as a taxpaying citizen and as a person who is not a convicted felon."
About his troubled Seattle stay and its fallout:
"I got arrested in front my kids three times in my three days stay in Seattle... And all we were doing was coming into town to sell jokes and police department painted me as some sort of public menace that came to town....I'm just gonna go ahead and announce my retirement from standup, I'm kinda done."
Finally, here's KOMO's hubbub-encapsulating video:
