According to a police statement, the tackle did not injure Dave Chappelle. Moreover, the suspect was taken into custody Tuesday night, booking him on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.

The attacker is being held on a $30,000 bail, as claimed by LAPD booking records. What motivated him to run onto the stage remains unclear.

The incident is unsettling; however, it should not overshadow this record-breaking performance at the Hollywood Bowl. What’s more, the media reports that the comedian kept on with the show, working with Jamie Foxx and Chris Rock to humor the crowd.
