L.A. district attorney declines felony charges for suspect in Dave Chappelle Hollywood Bowl attack

LA’s woke DA George Gascon has declined felony charges against the man who attacked Dave Chappelle at his Hollywood Bowl concert, reducing the charges to a misdemeanor instead. 


23-year-old Isaiah Lee ran on stage to attack Chappelle at the show on Wednesday yielding the knife that was hidden inside a gun. Luckily, the stand-up comedian was able to sidestep him and was unharmed. The attacker was then arrested at the scene, and taken to hospital with a broken and dislocated arm. 


With several questions being asked about security at the event and how the man smuggled in the weapon, Gascon’s office – which is famously in favor of low-or-no-cash-bonds – is not pursuing the most serious line of punishment. 


Instead, they have referred the case to the LA City Attorney Mike Feuer, recommending a misdemeanor charge because ‘the evidence as presented did not constitute felony conduct,’ according to ABC.


It means Lee, who is currently being held on a $30,000 bond for felony assault with a deadly weapon, may soon walk free. It’s unclear when he is next due in court. 


Gascon is so famously soft on crime that convicted murderers have heralded him as a hero.
