Comedian Dave Chappelle was attacked onstage Tuesday night as he performed at Los Angeles' Hollywood Bowl arena, with videos from audience members' cellphones quickly flooding social media and showing a man appear to run onto the stage and tackle the comic.

Chappelle, whose unapologetic humor has made him a lightning rod for criticism, appeared unscathed by the sudden interruption and later joked (NOTE: Linked video contains harsh language including profanity) with fellow comedian and actor Jamie Foxx onstage that he'd taken revenge on his attacker.


Videos posted to Twitter appeared to show the person who charged Chappelle being detained outside the venue by police and then loaded into an ambulance with visible injuries.

Witnesses said — and videos appeared to show — that the man was set upon by multiple people onstage immediately after he attacked Chappelle.

No felony charges for man who attacked Dave Chappelle at Hollywood Bowl

The man accused of attacking Dave Chappelle onstage at the Hollywood Bowl Tuesday night, armed with a knife, will not face felony charges.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office said Thursday that it will not pursue felony charges against 23-year-old Isaiah Lee.

The case has instead been referred to the L.A. City Attorney's Office for possible misdemeanor charges, the DA's office said. No further details were immediately disclosed.

"After reviewing the evidence, prosecutors determined that while criminal conduct occurred, the evidence as presented did not constitute felony conduct," the DA's office said in a statement. "The District Attorney's Office does not prosecute misdemeanor crimes within the city of Los Angeles."

    "hey tom_mai please do not archive anymore news" ----> Got it. What should we do with the "News Archive" subforum?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I think leave it for real old news that cannot be sorted the reason we had it in the first place was a server issue that we do not have anymore. I don't want to get rid of the archive just not put anything in it for now until we figure it out more
