He’s just barely out of jail and already video of comedian Katt Williams in another fight is picking up steam online. This time it’s with a teenager, according to video posted on Facebook.

Williams, who was in the Atlanta projects handing out cash, allegedly threw the first punch, which wasn’t shown in the video, according to TMZ.

The video shows a reported seventh-grader lunging toward Williams. Then the two tussle, falling to the ground before the boy put the comedian in a choke hold while rolling in the grass.

He was recently accused of fighting agitators in Los Angeles — which he told TMZ was self-defense. He was also accused of bum-rushing a stage and punching a man at a rap show in Philadelphia.

Williams has been arrested twice in Hall County alone, once on Feb. 29 and a second time on March 8.

The Feb. 29 arrest occurred after a store employee at Leslie’s Pool Supplies on Dawsonville Highway told police the comedian punched him during an argument. Williams, who told TMZ he did what he had to do after the employee made a racist remark, was released on $5,000 bond in that incident.

The comedian was arrested March 8 after investigators said he threatened to kill his bodyguard and ordered an acquaintance to shave the victim and hit him with a bat.

After his release from jails in Hall and Fulton counties, Williams responded to the controversy about him saying he’s ready to deal with the criminal charges.

“I am just like most Christians, under daily attack, but somehow holding up well,” he said.

Williams is also facing misdemeanor charges because he and some members of his entourage were accused of physically attacking and stealing cellphones from five women who were visiting Atlanta in late February.
