Katt Williams is in the legal doghouse again.

The comedian has been charged with misdemeanor battery for allegedly starting a physical altercation at the Sportsmen’s Lodge hotel in Studio City on July 24, a spokesman for the Los Angeles City Attorney said.

He’s due for arraignment Thursday.

The incident, first reported by TMZ.com, involved a female employee at the hotel. Williams allegedly felt disrespected by the woman and punched her, the website said.

The stand-up star, 44, has faced similar allegations before.

He was accused of attacking a Georgia shopkeeper in February inside a Gainsville pool store.

He later told TMZ the store worker caused the confrontation by accusing him of stealing and dropping a racial slur.

If convicted of his latest charge, he could face up to six months in county jail.
