Authorities say Williams was arrested Wednesday and was being held without bond. Police say the 44-year-old Williams and 17-year-old Luke Wash are charged with disorderly conduct after fighting at an apartment complex in Gainesville. Wash is charged as an adult.

Williams is scheduled to appear Friday in New Orleans and Saturday in Bossier City, Louisiana. Yvette Shearer of Shearer Public Relations, which is handling publicity for Williams' "Conspiracy Theory 2016" tour, said none of the scheduled appearances have been canceled.

Williams' lawyer didn't immediately respond to phone and email messages. Jail records list no lawyer for Wash.

The arrest is the latest for Williams, who's also accused of threatening a bodyguard and punching an employee at a pool supply store.
