Caught On Camera: Watch Chappelle's Show Star in Bar Brawl Over $12 Tab

Waitress accused him of skipping out on the bill.

Published March 14, 2016

Chappelle's Show star Donnell Rawlings (you might remember him as "Ashy Larry") was just trying to unwind at a bar called Little Pete's in Philadelphia last night when things went south.

According to TMZ, the actor and bar management started brawling over a $12 bar tab when they believed Rawlings was trying to skip out on his bill. Rawlings, however, says that he had just stepped out for a smoke when a waitress started accusing him of dining-and-dashing.

“All I asked was for you to pay your check,” the woman screams. “Who the hell do you think you are?”

The whole incident was caught on video and you can see how quickly things escalated:

The Little Pete's employee who Donnell fought says he was drunk and appeared to be walking out on his tab. Cops were called and the actor ultimately paid his bill...and tipped $60 on top of it. He tweeted about the incident after he got home:
