While this is what is in the news today, Williams seems to have a history of legal trouble. In 2006, Williams was arrested at Los Angeles International Airport after a stolen gun was found in his briefcase. Then in 2010 while working on a film Williams was arrested again, this time he was accused of stealing $3,500 worth of coins and jewelry. Then earlier this year in October, a lawsuit was filed in the Superior Court of California County of Los Angeles which alleges that Williams hit his former assistant with “a closed fist” causing serious injury. And according to The Hollywood Reporter,

 He also was reportedly charged with three misdemeanor counts of fourth-degree assault related to two incidents in Seattle earlier this month.
