When the owner attempted to collect from the funny man, things got nasty.
Merion Powers filed the lawsuit in Fulton County Superior Court, claiming Williams, of Detroit, used his studio to record his comedy routines.
Williams allegedly showed up to Powers’ studio in October 2009 with his “attack dog.”
Upon a verbal command from Williams, his dog pounced on a dog owned by Powers, causing an injury to the animal that required veterinary treatment.
In December, Williams asked Powers to meet him at the Four Seasons Hotel to discuss the incident.
When he arrived, he allegedly told Williams he was thinking of filing criminal charges over the dog attack.
Williams allegedly threatened to kill Powers in the hotel room, while his attack dog circled Powers snarling at the man.
One of Williams‘ bodyguards then restrained Powers from behind while Williams punched the man in the face, as the attack dog stood by, “apparently waiting for the attack signal.”
Powers seeks at least $1 million dollars in damages.
