Dave Chappelle Scores Legal Victory Against Man Who Threw Banana Peel at Him During Show

By TheBlast Staff

Dave Chappelle has come out victorious in a lawsuit filed against him by a man who threw a banana peel at the comedian during one of his shows.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, a New Mexico judge has ordered all claims against Chappelle be dismissed in the case brought against him by Christian Englander.

The man failed to locate Chappelle and serve him with the legal docs since he filed in March 2018 and, as a result, the entire case was dismissed.

Last year, Englander sued Dave Chappelle and his bodyguard over an incident that went down at one of his 2015 shows.

The suit claimed at the comedian's performance in Santa Fe, Englander got into with Chappelle and his bodyguard after he got angry with something the comedian said during his act. Englander threw a banana peel at Chapelle on stage and claimed Chappelle's bodyguard hit him twice in the face while he was being restrained by security.

Englander claims the banana peel tossing was not racially motivated.

According to reports, Englander was facing charges of battery and disturbing the peace following the incident but they were dropped when Chappelle did not want to participate with the prosecution.

Englander sued seeking unspecified damages.
