Dave Chappelle confronted a scary incident throughout his stay present in Los Angeles.

Whereas the comic was performing on the Hollywood Bowl on Tuesday, Might 3, an unidentified man seated within the viewers rushed the stage and tackled Chappelle. The Los Angeles Police Division confirmed the incident to NBC Los Angeles early Wednesday, Might 4, stating that the suspect was armed with a reproduction gun that—when discharged accurately—ejects a knife blade. Whereas it is not recognized whether or not the suspect tried to make use of the weapon, authorities did verify that Chappelle was not injured in the course of the incident. 

After the suspect tackled Chappelle, venue safety stepped in to detain the suspect, who LAPD mentioned sustained “superficial accidents” and was taken to the hospital.

Chapelle, 48, was performing on the Hollywood Bowl as a part of the Netflix Is A Joke Fest. Earlier within the evening, fellow comic Chris Rock took the stage to carry out on the venue.
