Isaiah Lee was sentenced to 270 days in jail for fighting Dave Chappelle

A crazed attacker who punched comedian Dave Chappelle on stage pleaded no contest Wednesday and was sentenced to 270 days in jail.

Isaiah Lee, 24, rocked the stunned comedian in front of a packed Hollywood Bowl on May 3 in front of a stunned audience.

Lee, who police say was armed with a replica gun and knife, was charged with assault and trespassing, according to the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office.

He got away with the crime because he didn’t produce the weapons during the attack.

Chappelle, who identifies as bisexual, said the controversial material in the LGBTQ+ community “triggered” him and led to violence.

“I want him to know that next time he should consider getting his material handled by the people he’s most likely to influence in the first place,” he told The Post.

He also said that Will Smith’s brutal beating of Chris Rock at the Oscars prompted him to rush Chappelle at the Los Angeles show.

A plea of ​​no contest does not require a guilty plea, but still results in a conviction.

Lee is also awaiting trial in 2021 on a separate charge of attempted murder in the stabbing of his roommate.
