It must really pay to be Katt Williams' lawyer these days. The comedian is facing another brush with the law — his third in the past seven days — stemming from his violent temper. According to TMZ, Williams is being sued by his former tour manager Mark Williams (not clear if there's a relation between the two) for assault and battery.

The comedian's former employee claims Katt hit him "with such force and power that he was rendered unconscious for a period of 90 seconds." He adds that Katt was "wearing his diamond rings which served as a brass knuckles weapon."

The lawsuit doesn't detail what caused the ruckus between the comedian and his former manager, who claims he suffered a concussion, loose tooth and unspecified facial and head injuries.
