(Newser) – Michael Richards, infamous for his N-word-laden 2006 rant (which he later parodied), may have had another meltdown. The Seinfeld star is being sued by a photographer for allegedly beating him up in Los Angeles on Aug. 25, TMZ reports. According to the suit, Richards approached the snapper in a “menacing manner … with closed fists” before allegedly punching him in the face, pushing him to the ground, and kicking him “numerous times.”
