LOS ANGELES (AP) – A man accused of attacking comedian Dave Chapel during a performance at the Hollywood Bowl on Friday pleaded not guilty to four offenses.

23-year-old Isaiah Lee pleaded not guilty in a Los Angeles courtroom on charges of battery, possession of a deadly weapon with intent to attack, illegal passage from the auditorium to the stage at a theatrical event and obstruction or delay of such an event with illegal conduct.

Lee, who remains in jail, was ordered to remain at least 100 yards (91 meters) from Chapelle, whose lawyer called for a hearing to demand a protection order.

Authorities say Lee was arrested Tuesday night after running onto the stage during Chapel’s set last four nights at the Hollywood Bowl, which was part of the Netflix Is a Joke comedy festival.

According to police, he was carrying a copy of a pistol with a large blade that was folded out of it like a pocket knife.

The Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office determined that he had not committed any crimes, and referred the case to the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office, which charged him with four crimes.
