Charges tossed in Dave Chappelle banana peel case

Christian Englander - Dave Chappelle

SANTA FE (KRQE) – The Santa Fe man accused of throwing a banana at Dave Chappelle is off the hook, as long as he performs some community service. The charges against Christian Englander have been dropped in exchange for 22 hours of community service by February

Back in March, Englander tossed a banana peel at the comedian after he says Chappelle made fun of his friend. Chappelle called it a racist act.

Prosecturs say Chappelle would not agree to come testify, so they agreed to the deal. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
