The FBI searched the home of YouTube star Jake Paul in Calabasas, California, said an NBC news report.
This as part of an investigation into rioting at an Arizona mall in May amid George Floyd protests.
Also, the FBI searched the home of a nightclub promoter named, Arman Izadi, as part of an investigation.
This is according to the FBI’s Phoenix office said in a statement.
Moreover, the Scottsdale Police Department said in a statement that misdemeanor charges are slapped against Paul, Izadi, and a certain Andrew Leon.
The allegations stemmed from the May incident included criminal trespassing and unlawful assembly.
The search warrants served on Wednesday were sealed, and the FBI said that it could not comment further.
The report said stores in the Old Town Scottsdale area were damaged May 30 into May 31 during the protests.
This includes Neiman Marcus, Anthropologie, Sprinkles Cupcakes, and a Mercedes Benz dealership.
Amidst the chaos, Paul captured with a video to document the unrest that transpired inside the Fashion Square Mall.
Police alleged in a statement that he “unlawfully entered” the mall and stayed after police had declared an unlawful assembly that night.
No Stranger To Controversy
Paul is no stranger to controversy.
He once landed a role in Bizaardvark, Disney Channel series, but got to quit during the middle of the filming of the second season.
This is after neighbors complain of noise coming from Paul’s pranks, parties, fire hazards, and large crowds that amass his home.
Equally controversial is his brother—Logan Paul, who pushed YouTube into punishing him.
This is because of his “posted a video showing the body of an apparent suicide victim in Japan,” said BBC.
YouTube cut ties with Logan Paul.
He was not able to recover from that controversy since.
