The attacker, Isaiah Lee, was charged with one misdemeanor count of battery and entering a restricted area during a live event. The plea was entered nearly two months after a judge requested a diversion program that could dismiss the charges for Lee.

According to Deadline, Lee is currently behind bars for a different case. Last year, Lee was charged with stabbing his roommate at a transitional housing facility.


Chappelle was attacked onstage on May 3 while performing for the Netflix Is a Joke Festival.
