WASHINGTON, March 23 (UPI) -- Katt Williams threw the first punch, but found himself quickly incapacitated by a teenager who grabbed him in a chokehold in a video that's gone viral.
In the clip shared online, Williams is seen confronting the teen while surrounded by several others and then apparently sucker punching him square in the face.
Seconds later, another shot shows the same teen pulling the comedian to the ground and locking him in a chokehold until he is pulled off. Williams has made no comment on the video, nor other official sources have commented on the clip.
The altercation comes shortly after Williams was accused of assault by a woman named Jamila Majesty, who claims the celebrity broke her ribs and attacked several other women in his Malibu home.
The troubled comedian has also been linked to several other disturbances in recent months, including accusations of holding a bodyguard hostage, fighting at a Beanie Sigel concert in Philadelphia and holding a group of women at gunpoint in Atlanta. He is also accused of punching a pool store worker after an argument, according to reports.
A much longer video of Williams' playground fight was later uploaded by a Facebook user who claims Williams was justified in punching the teen.
