(Los Angeles Times) – Comedian Dave Chappelle knows what’s funny, and it’s definitely not getting hit by a banana peel while on stage.

That is exactly what happened to the “Chappelle’s Show” star Monday night while he was doing stand-up at the Lensic Performing Arts Center in Santa Fe, N.M.

Audience member Christian Englander, who “appeared to be highly intoxicated,” threw the peel at 41-year-old Chappelle, hitting the “Half Baked” creator on his leg during his set, according to a statement by the Santa Fe Police Department.

Englander, who police say admitted to throwing the banana peel, was arrested on suspicion of battery and disorderly conduct.

Englander, 30, had eaten the banana while waiting in line for the show and held on to the peel, according to the police report.
