Dave Chappelle Fends Off Legal Battle With Banana Peel Thrower

The ‘Half Baked’ comedian got sued by Christian Englander for injuries that the latter sustained after throwing a banana peel at the former during a 2015 stand-up show in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

AceShowbiz -Comedian Dave Chappelle has avoided a legal spat with a man who threw a banana peel at him during a stand-up show in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Christian Englander sued the funnyman and his bodyguard for injuries he sustained in a scuffle immediate following the 2015 club incident, but a judge has ordered all claims against Chappelle be dismissed, according to The Blast.

Englander maintained he threw a banana peel at Chapelle after the comedian said something offensive during his act, and he claims the stand-up’s bodyguard hit him twice in the face while he was being restrained by security.

Englander was facing charges of battery and disturbing the peace following the incident but they were dropped when Chappelle made it clear he did not want to participate with the prosecution.
