The man suspected of attacking comedian Dave Chappell on stage at the Hollywood Bowl has now been charged with attempted murder by stabbing him at a housing facility in December, according to the district attorney’s office.
Isaiah Lee, 23, has pleaded not guilty to the charges and is due to appear in court again on June 2, as reported by Deadline.
Lee is accused of holding a switchblade replica gun and charging the chapel during the Netflix is a joke earlier this month. He pleaded not guilty to four counts of aggravated assault, including assault, assault with a weapon, unlawful entry into a stage during a performance, and doing something that delayed or interfered with an actor.
Lee is in jail on $ 30,000 bail after being arrested on charges of assault with a deadly weapon. If he successfully posted the bond and was released, he was instructed to stay at least 100 yards away from the Chapel and the Hollywood Bowl.
According to the deadline, “this alleged attack has resulted,” City Attorney Mike Feuer announced the allegations at a video address.
He added, “My office takes the protection of public safety very seriously and we are going to take this case very seriously.”
