LATEST: A look-a-like who has been misrepresenting funnyman Robin Williams has reportedly agreed to stop trying to con gullible charities out of money after the actor threatened legal proceedings.

Williams filed a federal suit in Minnesota against impersonator MICHAEL CLAYTON after learning how he tried to con a firefighter charity out of money by pretending he was the real deal.

Now, according to US scandal show CELEBRITY JUSTICE, Clayton will cease posing as the real Williams.

In his lawsuit, filed earlier this month (MAY 05), the real Robin Williams asked for an unspecified amount of money in damages and accused Clayton and his agent of "going to great lengths to dupe innocent members of the media, general public and charitable organisations into falling for their ruse."

No criminal charges have been filed.
