Comedian Dave Chappelle attacked on stage
A 23-year-old man has been charged with trying to attack Dave Chappelle last night after storming on stage armed with a knife and tackling the comedian at his Hollywood Bowl show.
Isaiah Lee is now being held in the LA County Sheriff's custody on a single felony charge of assault with a deadly weapon. His bail has been set at $30,000.
Lee's motive for the attack remains unclear. Police have not yet established where he lives, and if he attended the show alone.
He stormed the stage while Chappelle joked that he'd had to increase his security in light of his trans jokes at the Netflix is a Joke festival.
The attacker was armed with a gun that contained a hidden knife, according to the cops. It's unclear if he was searched on his way into the venue, or how he was able to gain access to the stage.
Chappelle was uninjured and carried on with the show.
