Man Charged With Battery After Throwing Banana Peel At Dave Chappelle

Dave Chappelle was attacked at his last show– with a banana peel.

During a show Monday night (Mar. 30) in New Mexico, a man in the crowd threw a banana peel at the comedian while he was performing. The man, Christian Englander, was then apprehended by Santa Fe police and charged with battery and disorderly conduct. Englander was reportedly visibly intoxicated and admitted to hitting Chappelle with the banana peel in the leg.

TMZ reports that it was a “racist” attack yet there was no mention of any racist slurs or phrases being mentioned.

Chappelle was a trooper though and used the incident as impromptu material during his set.
