Beleaguered comedian Katt Williams has moved to settle his multi-million dollar tax bill by handing over a $284,000 (£177,500) payment to authorities.

The troubled funnyman has endured numerous arrests and legal woes over the last few months and he has also been chased by U.S. tax officials, who claimed he owed $3.2 million (£2 million) in taxes stemming from 2008, as well as another $829,352 (£518,340) from the following year (09).
