Isaiah Lee has been identified as a suspect by the Cops in Los Angeles who is being charged with felony assault with a deadly weapon.
Isaiah Lee is 23 years old.
DETAIL OF INCIDENCE:
The man accused of attacking Dave Chappelle Tuesday night during the Netflix Is a Joke Festival has been arrested and charged with felony assault with a deadly weapon. The LAPD confirms to people that Isaiah Lee, 23, is being held in the custody of the LAPD’s Hollywood Division on a $30,000 bond. It was not immediately clear if he has retained a lawyer.
Neither Chapelle nor any law enforcement officers were injured. One spokesperson says the weapon used was “a replica handgun with a knife,” describing it as a “replica handgun-slash-knife.”
The incident occurred towards the end of his performance when a man in a black hoodie rushed the stage at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, can confirm. The man appeared to push the 48-year-old comedian, knocking him to the ground. The attacker then attempted to flee but was stopped by security guards and members of Chappelle’s team. Footage posted on Twitter shows the attacker is removed from the scene on a stretcher. An LAPD spokesperson tells Lee was treated for injuries and subsequently cleared to be charged and booked.
Several other people sprung into action to help Chappelle, including Chris Rock who had performed earlier in the night. Jamie Foxx was also present.
Amid the chaos, Chappelle told audience members: “Everybody composes themselves. I want this to be a peaceful moment.”
Reps for Chappelle and the Hollywood Bowl did not immediately respond to people’s requests for comment.
People can confirm that Chappelle ended his set making jokes involving Will Smith. The Tuesday incident comes five weeks after Rock was smacked across the face by the 53-year-old actor at the 2022 Oscars after the comedian made a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith’s shaved head.
