Isaiah Lee, 24, faces one count of attempted murder, prosecutors said Thursday.

Lee is accused of stabbing his roommate on December 2, 2021 during a fight at a transitional apartment, officials said.

Earlier this month, prosecutors referred an assault case involving Lee to the LA City Attorney’s Office over the onstage incident involving Chappelle at the Hollywood Bowl.

“The publicity generated by the attack on Mr. Chappelle helped police solve this crime,” District Attorney George Gascón said in a statement Thursday. “The incident that occurred at the Hollywood Bowl constituted disorderly conduct and was properly referred to the city’s Attorney’s Office. Due to the nature and severity of the attack in December, Mr. Lee now faces criminal charges, which my office will prosecute.”

Lee pleaded not guilty to the charges and is expected to return to court on June 2.
