The comedian was able to dodge Lee and was uninjured. Security forcibly subdued Lee, who was later arrested by LAPD and taken to the hospital with a broken arm.

The next day, Chapelle released a statement describing the event as “disturbing and unfortunate.”

“Unfortunate and disturbing as the incident was, Chappelle continued with the show,” the statement read.

“Jamie Foxx and Chris Rock helped calm the crowd with humor before Chappelle introduced the last musical guests of the night.”

Lee also faces attempted murder charges after the confrontation led Los Angeles officials to discover that he was accused of stabbing his roommate, Dijon Washington, in December 2021.

“The publicity generated by the attack on Mr. Chappelle helped the police solve this crime,” Gascon said in a statement in May.

‘The incident that occurred at the Hollywood Bowl was a misdemeanor and was rightfully referred to the City Attorney’s Office.

“Consistent with the nature and severity of the December attack, Lee now faces felony charges that my office will prosecute.”

Lee pleaded not guilty to the stabbing charge and appeared before Judge James R. Dabney in Los Angeles Superior Court at the Foltz Criminal Justice Center in September.

Washington told a hearing on the stabbing that Lee had become increasingly erratic in the months leading up to the attack on Chappelle.

Lee wrote bizarre notes at his halfway house where he bragged about using marijuana and insulting Washington’s dead brother.

“He was saying, ‘I’m smoking your brother,’ bragging about how much money he’s making, whatever he was doing, how much weed he was smoking,” Washington testified.

‘It didn’t make sense to me. I knew that my brother had passed away a few months before that. It was respectless.

Tensions escalated until Dec. 2 last year when Washington laughed at Lee’s notes.

‘What the hell are you looking at?’ Lee asked before rushing Washington.

“We started fighting and they stabbed me,” Washington testified. Lee then fled the house.
