NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A bomb threat resulted in a quick evacuation of fans at a comedy show in Nashville late Saturday night.

In a release made by the Nashville Municipal Auditorium, Katt Williams abruptly ended his show 10 minutes before his set was planned to end due to a bomb threat. The auditorium stated that Williams decided not to inform the crowd of the bomb scare to avoid panic and possible injuries.

One local security consultant told News 2 he thought Williams made the right call. He said high-stress evacuations can lead to crowding and fans trampling over one another.

“When the crowd becomes scared, if you tell them certain information that will arouse their fear then there is no order. It’s ‘me,’ self-preservation, I’m going to get out of here as quick as I can and I’m going to run over whoever I can in the process,” security consultant JC Shegog said.

Katt Williams was in Nashville as a part of his “World War III” comedy tour. The comedian has not made a statement regarding the incident at this time.
