Comedian Micah “Katt” Williams was charged Wednesday with battery after police said he got into a fight with a woman in the parking lot of a Studio City hotel.

The Los Angeles City Attorney’s office charged Williams, 44, with the misdemeanor in connection with the July 24 incident. He is not required to appear at his arraignment Thursday.

Los Angeles police officers were called to the Sportsmen’s Lodge at Ventura Boulevard and Coldwater Canyon Avenue about 11 a.m. after a female employee reported being in an altercation with Williams, Sgt. Gary Chilingarian said.

The unidentified woman suffered a minor injury following a dispute with Williams, police said.

The performer is currently free on $20,000 bond.

His arrest is the latest for the “Scary Movie 5” actor, who was charged in March with disorderly conduct after getting into a fight with a 17-year-old in Georgia.

Williams and former rap mogul Marion “Suge” Knight also were charged with stealing a photographer’s camera outside a Beverly Hills studio. Beverly Hills police said the pair chased the photographer on Sept. 5, 2014, and grabbed her camera. In that case, Williams faces a maximum sentence of seven years in prison if convicted of robbery. He has pleaded not guilty.
