CALABASAS (CBSLA) – FBI agents Wednesday served a search warrant on the Calabasas home of social media star Jake Paul as part of what authorities say is an ongoing investigation.
3:06 PM PT — It appears almost certain Wednesday’s raids in Calabasas and Vegas have to do with Jake’s Scottsdale arrest. Armani Izadi — a longtime collaborator and former friend of Jake’s — owns the Vegas home that was raided by the FBI. Izadi was also arrested with Jake in Scottsdale.
2:08 PM PT — The FBI has just played its hand — partially — and revealed the raid is somehow in connection with Jake getting arrested in Scottsdale during a George Floyd protest. The FBI tells TMZ, “The FBI is investigating allegations of criminal acts surrounding the incident at Scottsdale Fashion Square in May, 2020.”
Jake was in the mall and arrested for trespass and was charged with a criminal misdemeanor, but the City Attorney has dropped the case — it appears at the behest of the FBI — and the more serious investigation has taken precedence.
12:37 PM PT — It appears the FBI have seized weapons from Jake Paul’s Calabasas home — firearms, specifically … this based on aerial footage of the scene from ABC 7.
Law enforcement officials were spotted walking down Jake’s driveway, with what appear to be rifles and perhaps shotguns in hand — two per person, from what we can see here.
BTW, a second raid happened nearly 300 miles away from the one that was just executed at Jake’s Calabasas home — in Sin City no less … at a house that’s tangentially connected to JP.
Federal agents descended upon the famous Graffiti Mansion in Las Vegas Wednesday, which is said to be owned by Armani Izadi … who — at one point — was good buddies with Jake. In fact, the two of them were seen hanging out as recently as early July, getting into shenanigans together.
