Dave Chappelle’s stage attacker sentenced to 270 days in jail

24-year-old Isaiah Lee who attacked Dave Chappelle onstage at the Hollywood Bowl has been sentenced to 9 months behind bars after taking a plea deal with prosecutors.

Back in May, Lee ran onstage in the middle of Dave’s performance at the Hollywood Bowl, evading security and tackling Chappelle to the ground.

After taking Dave to the ground, Lee ran off the stage … catching an epic beatdown before being arrested.

It was discovered Lee was carrying a replica gun with a knife blade during the incident … and L.A. County D.A. George Gascon took a ton of heat for refusing the charge Lee with a felony. Instead, the L.A. City Attorney ultimately charged him with four misdemeanors.

Meanwhile, Dave Chappelle attracted criticism in late 2021 when his Netflix special was accused of being transphobic. Around 100 people protested outside Netflix’s headquarters of the airing of the show, and a live gig in Minneapolis was cancelled hours before he was due to take to the stage.

In an interview with the New York Post after the attack, Lee said he was bisexual and was offended by Chappelle’s comments about the LGBTQ community.

In addition to his jail sentence for the Chappelle attack, Lee is facing an attempted murder charge for a separate incident where he’s accused of stabbing his roommate, TMZ reported.
