EX-NBA star Jayson Williams, known for his run-ins with police, has been arrested once again.

Williams, 41, was arrested after a bar fight at the Ugly Monkey, a bar off of Harrington St. in Raleigh, NC. The fight occurred just before 2:00 AM. Police charged Williams with simple assault and released him a short time later after he paid a $1,000 bond.

His legal wranglings are well known. First, he was embroiled in the shooting of his limo driver in 2002. Next, NYPD officers had to taser Williams when he became violent after threatening to kill himself.

Note to Jayson: Next time you're at a club called the "Ugly Monkey," try to remain invisible.

More details when they become available.
