The details of the alleged altercation were under investigation. His lawyer didn't immediately return a request for comment from The Associated Press.
Williams has been arrested multiple times throughout the country on assault and burglary charges.
In 2006, he was arrested after an allegedly stolen gun was found in his briefcase at Los Angeles International Airport. He pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor count of carrying a concealed firearm.
Almost two years ago, Williams and rap producer Marion "Suge" Knight were arrest for allegedly stealing a camera from a photographer in Beverly Hills. They are awaiting separate trials in that case.
