Isaiah Lee, the man accused of attacking Dave Chappelle earlier this week at a stand-up comedy show may walk scot-free after the Los Angeles District Attorney declined to pursue a felony charge. This is despite the attacker charging at the comedian with a knife attached to a replica gun.
Dave Chappelle’s Attacker to face misdemeanor charges
Initially, the police held Lee for attack with a deadly weapon and set bail at $30,000. But the charges may be relegated to a misdemeanor and transferred to LA City. According to a statement by the District Attorney’s spokesman, the DA’s office does not persecute crimes within Los Angeles
“After reviewing the evidence, prosecutors determined that while criminal conduct occurred, the evidence as presented did not constitute felony conduct,” said the spokesperson for the department. “The District Attorney’s Office does not prosecute misdemeanor crimes within the city of Los Angeles.”
50 Cents’ Opinion
Reacting to the news on Instagram, 50 Cent was visibly irritated by the news and suggested that had DaBaby been the attacker, the DA’s office would have treated him differently.
“oh Shit, is the LGBTQ gonna kill Dave right in front of us ? he had a weapon a gun, knife how he or she don’t get charged? The world is over, Fvck this,” wrote 50. “@dababy they would have charged your ass for thinking about doing that. LOL.”
Dababy; ‘they Woulda Gave My Ass 100 Years’
Upon seeing 50 Cent’s posts about him, DaBaby joked that he would have received 100 years for even thinking about storming on stage with a weapon and hitting the comedian.
“They woulda gave my ass 100 years,” said DaBaby
Also reacting to the news was Royce Da 5’9 who approved that the attacker should have suffered maximum consequences and faced felony charges for his action.
He wrote, “Fax… This is bullshit.”
While Dave Chappelle is yet to react to the news, he seemed to be in good spirits following the attack. Chappelle thanked his security team for protecting him and making sure Isaiah Lee understood the consequences of his actions.
