Michael Richards Accused of Unleashing Serious Beatdown on Photographer

by at . Comments

Michael Richards is known for the iconic role of Kramer on Seinfeld. Unfortunately, he's been in the news for some very unfunny reasons in recent years.

There was the infamous n-word rant in 2006. Now the actor is accused, via a lawsuit, of unleashing a serious beating on a photographer in L.A. last month.

Brendon O'Neal claims Richards approached him on the street August 25 in a "menacing manner, with closed fists," then proceeded to beat him up badly.

Bad Cosmo. Very bad Cosmo.

O'Neal claims Richards punched him in the face, knocked him to the ground, and then went on to kick repeatedly at O'Neal's arms, hands, and camera.

O'Neal claims he suffered "great mental, physical, and nervous pain and suffering" - and is suing for unspecified damages, medical expenses, and more.

The lawsuit gives no explanation as to what triggered the alleged beating. It's a depressing story in any case ... but these Seinfeld quotes are hilarious!
