A 23-year-old young man was booked on assault with a deadly weapon after police say he rammed the Chappelle onstage.
The man has been booked into jail on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon after police say he tackled Dave Chappelle onstage while carrying a replica handgun that contained a knife. The comedian was on stage at his performance at the Hollywood Bowl late Tuesday night.
The attacker attempted to take on Chappelle… but the comedian broke free and continued the show as security and others sprinted from across the stage, cornered the attacker, and began beating him while members of the crowd watched, stunned.
Most people had their phone locked up which explains why we don’t have so many videos released. Returning to the show, the comedian joked, “Thank god he was clumsy,” and told the crowd the attacker was “back there getting stomped.”
Police have identified the suspect as Isaiah Lee, who is being held on $30,000 bail. He was booked on suspicion charges of assault with a deadly weapon, almost five hours after being treated by medical staff outside the Hollywood Bowl.
Lee is a rapper who goes by NONAME_TRAPPER on social media, Spotify, and other platforms. He has released several albums, including one from 2020 titled “born and die in the trap,” which includes a song called “Dave Chappelle.” In the two-minute song, he repeats “life with you niggas is a joke.”
