American comedian Dave Chappelle was attacked on the Hollywood Bowl stage in Los Angeles on Tuesday by a knife-wielding person who knocked him to the ground before he was arrested and detained.

A Los Angeles Police Department spokesman said that the suspect, 23-year-old Isaiah Lee, was being held on $30,000 bail after being charged with felony assault with a deadly weapon.

The spokesman reported that Lee was carrying a fake pistol with a knife blade when he attacked Chappelle.
