YouTube star Jake Paul's LA home raided by FBI

Youtube star Jake Paul's mansion home was radied by FBI agents in tactical gear on Wednesday (August 5). The FBI says it's linked to an investigation stemming from a looting spree at a mall in Arizona. Local television footage of the raid showed FBI agents seizing rifles from his home. An FBI spokeswoman said agents were quote "investigating allegations of criminal acts surrounding the incident at Scottsdale Fashion Square in May." The agency said they also searched two other locations in Las Vegas, but they say no one was taken into custody, and no arrest warrant has been issued for Paul. The 23-year-old influencer and his older brother Logan Paul, also a YouTube personality, aren't shy of media controversy and have made previous headlines for provocative pranks. However as of late Wednesday, there were no statements after the raids on Paul's Twitter or Instagram. Separately, Scottsdale police had filed misdemeanor charges in June accusing Paul of criminal trespass and unlawful assembly in connection with "riots" at the Fashion Square mall. Civil disturbances in Scottsdale grew out of the demonstrations triggered by the killing of George Floyd. But police said Paul's misdemeanor charges were dismissed on Wednesday. Paul denied that he or anyone with him took part in looting or vandalism, and said he was "documenting, not engaging" in lawlessness.
