Isaiah Lee, the man who attacked Dave Chappelle on stage during his Hollywood Bowl show, is now facing attempted murder charges in another case. 

The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced Lee, 23, was arrested on Thursday (May 19) in connection to a fight with his roommate at a transitional housing facility on December 2, 2021. 

The DA’s office said the victim identified Lee as his attacker after the suspect gained significant media attention after attacking Dave Chappelle. 

District Attorney George Gascón said in a statement: 

The publicity generated by the attack on Mr. Chappelle helped the police solve this crime.

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

Based on the nature and severity of the December attack, Mr. Lee is now facing felony charges which my office will prosecute.

On May 3, Isaiah Lee charged and tackled Dave Chappelle to the ground at the Netflix Is a Joke Festival.

Security quickly intervened and gave Isaiah Lee a lifetime reminder of why you should never run up on Dave Chappelle on stage or anywhere else for that matter.

Lee was armed with a fake gun with a real knife inside of it. 

The next day, Lee was charged with felony assault with a deadly weapon, however, his charges were downgraded to four misdemeanors, including battery, possessing a deadly weapon with intent to assault, unauthorized access to the stage area during a performance and commission of an act that delays the event or interferes with the performer.

He pleaded guilty to those charges. 

A Los Angeles County judge denied his request to be released on his own recognizance and left his bail at $30,000.

Now, he is facing the attempted murder charge. 

Lee pleaded not guilty to one count of attempted murder over the violent quarrel.
