Dave Chappelle was attacked onstage on Tuesday night while performing at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.
Isaiah Lee stormed the stage after Chappelle joked about increasing his security following his trans jokes at the ‘Netflix is a Joke festival’.
According to police, Lee was armed with a gun that had a hidden knife. It’s unclear if he was searched when he entered the venue, or how he was able to gain access to the stage.
Chappelle was uninjured and carried on with the show.
Lee was tackled by security guards who appeared to break his arm. His injuries after being beat by security guards resulted in him getting taken to the hospital.
He is being held in the LA County Sheriff’s custody on a single felony charge of assault with a deadly weapon. His bail was set at $30,000.
Lee’s motive for the attack remains unclear.
