Dave Chappelle attacked at Hollywood Bowl: Who is the alleged suspect, Isaiah Lee?. Lee allegedly attacked Chappelle in the middle of his standup performance Tuesday night in Los Angeles.
The Los Angeles Police Department arrested a suspect and charged him with assault with a deadly weapon after Dave Chappelle was attacked onstage Tuesday night.
The alleged suspect, identified by LAPD as Isaiah Lee, was carrying a replica gun with a knife blade inside when he attacked Chappelle during the Hollywood Bowl, police say. The comedian was in the middle of his standup routine for “Netflix Is a Joke.”
So, who is the 23-year-old suspect?
The LAPD declined to comment to Fox News Digital when asked about Lee’s criminal history. A California court record search did not yield any results for someone with Lee’s name and month and year of birth.
Jail records describe Lee as being a Black male with black hair and brown eyes, who stands 5 feet, 11 inches tall and weighs about 140 pounds. He has been charged with assault with a deadly weapon, a felony, and is being held on $30,000 bail, authorities said. No court date has been set, records show.
Meanwhile, according to the New York Post, Lee is a rapper. An Instagram search shows someone with the name Isaiah Lee, who appears to go by the username, “noname_trapper,” and matches the physical description of the suspect.
The user posted an Instagram story earlier Tuesday wearing the same sweatshirt that the suspect was seen donning in later photos following his arrest. The Instagram Story showed him with his hair up, his hood over his head and a filter of a bloody nose and horns.
A YouTube search for someone with the name “Noname_trapper” produced dozens of rap videos, including one that shows a man standing on what appears to be a police vehicle, flashing the middle finger.
One song, posted on June 2020, is titled “Dave Chappell” and contains a phrase that sounds like: “Walkin’ straight into the bowl” with a laugh.
The attack on Chappelle, allegedly done by Lee, took place toward the end of Chappelle’s standup routine. The comedian thanked both Busta Rhymes and Jamie Foxx for helping out following the attack.
An arrest has been made in an incident where a comedian was attacked while on stage at the Hollywood Bowl. Isaiah Lee was charged with Assault with a Deadly Weapon and bail is set at $30,000.
