Dave Chappelle leaves Perth after wild crowd brawl in midst of RAC Arena show trends now
Comedian Dave Chappelle has fled Perth in a private jet hours after his performance was abruptly interrupted mid-show when a wild brawl broke out in the crowd.
Fans have recalled how the controversial Emmy-winning stand-up comedian was performing at a packed RAC Arena on Thursday night when a commotion that involved yelling and swearing broke out in a top tier at the back of the venue.
No footage of the wild scenes has emerged as Chappelle has maintained a strict no-phones policy at his performances for at least six years.
It's understood Chappelle was discussing how he was famously tackled on stage in LA's Hollywood Bowl by an audience member almost a year ago when all hell broke loose.
Chappelle was spotted arriving at a Perth Airport private jet hangar early Friday morning following the drama-filled first concert of his Australian tour.

He was casually dressed in a black singlet top, black pants and white sneakers.
Chappelle will perform two shows at Sydney Olympic Park this weekend, several days after he was seen meeting fans and taking selfies outside a Jamaican restaurant in inner-city Surry Hills.
Fans at Thursday night's performance praised Chappelle on his professionalism.
'Dave Chappelle showed me he is the GOAT in Perth tonight and an absolute professional. Shame some bogans in the crowd decided to have a fight half way
