Christian Englander, who threw a banana peel at comedian Dave Chappelle during a performance in Santa Fe, N.M., in 2015, filed a lawsuit Friday against Chappelle and a man presumed to be his bodyguard, the AP reports.

The suit alleges the presumed bodyguard struck Englander twice as he was being restrained, the story reports.

“Englander, who is white, has said he had no racial motivation when he threw the banana peel at Chappelle, who is black, but was angered by something Chappelle said during the show,” the AP reports. “Englander faced charges of battery and disturbing the peace, but they were dropped because Chappelle was unwilling to participate in the prosecution.”
