The Los Angeles district attorney has declined to press felony charges against the suspect in the Dave Chappelle Hollywood Bowl attack.

The man who attacked Dave Chappelle at his Hollywood Bowl show has been charged with a misdemeanor instead of a felony, according to LA’s awakened DA George Gascon.

On Wednesday, 23-year-old Isaiah Lee stormed the stage to attack Chappelle, revealing the knife disguised inside a revolver. Fortunately, the stand-up comic was able to avoid him and escaped injury. After being apprehended on the spot, the attacker was transported to the hospital with a fractured and dislocated arm.

Gascon’s office, which is known for favoring low-or-no-cash-bonds, is not pursuing the most serious route of punishment with multiple questions being raised regarding security at the event and how the man snuck in the weapon.

According to ABC, the matter has been sent to LA City Attorney Mike Feuer, who has recommended a misdemeanor charge since “the evidence as presented did not support felony activity.”

Lee, who is presently being held on a $30,000 bond for felony assault with a deadly weapon, could be set loose anytime soon.

It’s unknown when he’ll be in court again.

Gascon is so well-known for his leniency toward criminals that condemned murderers have hailed him as a hero.
