Comedian was caught on video having a fight outside Little Pete’s diner – a real Philadelphia institution- this weekend.

According to TMZ, Rawlings was at the tiny old school diner Sunday morning having some breakfast.  Cell phone footage of the incident was posted on TMZ. The footage shows Rawlings being physically pushed out of the diner, and Rawlings throwing a wild punch towards one of the men who removed him and arguing with a waitress.

The he-said/she-said part of this, is he says he went out for a smoke.  His waitress says he was skipping out on his bill. Rawlings tweeted that he had left his bag behind and obviously wasn’t ditching.  You can hear during the fight that he had, in fact, left his bag behind. Whatever happened, a big fight broke out and the cops were called to the scene.

TMZ says Donnell eventually paid his bill after all the fighting cooled off- all of $12- and left a $60 tip, and gave his explanation to TMZ about what happened.  He’s claiming racial profiling. “I’m not Katt Williams” he told TMZ.  He said he left the giant tip because he wanted to make sure the waitress knew it wasn’t a money issue (using his catchphrase, “I”m rich bitch!”), and he had no need to run out on the tiny tab. Watch the original fight video below.
