Dave Chappelle Attacker Pleads Not Guilty in Court, Broken Arm in a Cast

The man who charged at Dave Chappelle onstage will have to come up with $30,000 bail before he gets out of a jail cell.

Isaiah Lee made his first appearance in an L.A. courtroom Friday morning to face 4 misdemeanor charges — and he looked very much worse for wear following the beatdown he got at the Hollywood Bowl.

Lee’s right arm was in a cast and a sling when he entered the courtroom and entered a not guilty plea on all charges. He was represented by a public defender who told the judge, Lee had suffered a broken arm — something that was painfully obvious as he was being hauled out of the Bowl on a stretcher.

If he’s able to come up with bail, Lee will be under a protective order … requiring him to stay at least 100 yards away from the Hollywood Bowl, Dave and any other venue at which the comedian performs.

As we reported, the L.A. County D.A., George Gascon, passed on felony charges for Lee and punted the case to the City Attorney, who charged Lee with possession of a weapon with intent to assault and unauthorized access to the stage area during a performance.

If convicted, he’d face no more than 18 months in county jail … but most likely far less than that.
