YouTuber Jake Paul’s Home Raided By The FBI On Wednesday Morning
Controversial YouTube star, Jake Paul’s LA mansion was raided by the FBI during a mysterious early morning search—and according to TMZ, weapons were seized during the investigations.
It was reported that on Wednesday morning, the agency visited Jake’s house as part of an ongoing investigation, but the specifics of what they were searching for are unclear. However, the raid comes roughly two weeks after a party was thrown at Jake’s home. The party sparked huge backlash in the YouTuber community, and even caught the attention of Calabasas’ mayor, Alicia Weintraub.
The Calabasas mayor was reportedly outraged after seeing footage taken at the mansion, which featured party-goers neglecting safety precautions amid the COVID-19 pandemic. “I was very upset that somebody would hold such an outrageous gathering in our community,” the mayor shared with ABC News. “We’re trying to do everything we can to get our numbers down and keep our community safe, and something like this just does the opposite.”

“They’re having this large party, no social distancing, no masks, it’s just a big huge disregard for everything that everybody is trying to do to get things back to functioning. It’s really just a party acting like COVID does not exist, it’s acting that businesses aren’t closed,” she said.
Nevertheless, it was confirmed yesterday that the reason behind the execution was due to Jake’s criminal involvement in the Scottsdale Fashion Square riots that took place on May 30th, 2020—as part of the #BlackLivesMatter movement. “The FBI is investigating allegations of criminal acts surrounding the incident at Scottsdale Fashion Square in May, 2020,” the statement read. “This morning the FBI executed federal search warrants in California and Las Vegas, Nevada in connection with this investigation. The search warrant affidavits are sealed and we are, therefore, prohibited from commenting further,” it also said.
”It has been decided that in the cases charging Jake Paul, Arman Izadi and Andrew Leon it is in the best interest of the community to dismiss misdemeanor charges without prejudice so that a federal criminal investigation can be completed. Scottsdale retains the option to refile charges depending on the outcome of the federal investigation,” the statement concluded.
