Police tell the Los Angeles Times that Williams was arrested at the Sportsmen’s Lodge late Sunday morning after a female employee said he injured her.
Williams faces a misdemeanor battery count and has been released on $20,000 bail. He’s due in court on Aug. 18. His lawyer didn’t immediately return a request for comment.
The 44-year-old Williams has been arrested several times this year, including in April, when police said he threw a salt shaker at a suburban Atlanta restaurant manager.
