The Mayor stated last month that the city was considering legal action against Jake Paul for throwing a party at his home during the coronavirus pandemic because of its’ magnitude. Is this there way of doing so?
Wednesday morning, FBI agents served a search warrant on the home of Youtube star Jake Paul. An FBI spokesperson would not comment or confirm what prompted the raid, but stated that it was, “an ongoing investigation.”
No arrests were planned and the search warrant was sealed by a judge to keep people in the dark on what they were truly looking for. However, if no arrests were made and Jake Paul isn’t in the wrong, you can be sure that you will hear from him on Twitter or Youtube in the following days with his response.
The 23-year-old and his older brother Logan Paul (25) are no strangers to controversy and legal hot water. Last month, Jake Paul threw a party in his home which brought the attention of the mayor who spoke about legal action. No one was reportedly wearing masks or practicing social distancing.
The video of the party went viral on social media, and Mayor Alicia Weintraub said she learned of the party when residents complained, “tons of people walking on the street unmasked and then gathering.”
The Mayor told ABC News, “I was very upset that somebody would hold such an outrageous gathering in our community. 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.”
The city of Calabasas has also enacted a policy of issuing a minimum $100 fine for not wearing a facial covering in public.
ABC7 Eyewitness News reported, “Authorities have seized multiple firearms from the Calabasas home of Youtube Star, Jake Paul, after the FBI served a search warrant early this morning.”
“What appeared to be multiple firearms were found scattered throughout the property, including what looked like a long gun proper up against a hot tub in the backyard.”
