Dave Chappelle Tackled During Hollywood Bowl Comedy Show

LOS ANGELES — Comedian Dave Chappelle was tackled during a performance at the Hollywood Bowl Tuesday night.

Security guards then overpowered the attacker, who was taken by ambulance from the scene.

Chappelle was able to continue his performance.

NBC News reported that the Los Angeles Police Department early Wednesday said the man was carrying a fake gun with a real knife blade inside it.

LAPD media relations made no official announcement of an arrest immediately after the attack and did not respond to an Associated Press request for details.

Chappelle was performing along with other comedians at the “Netflix Is A Joke” festival.
