Jake Paul Escapes All Charges After That FBI Raid

Word has it no federal charges will be laid against Jake Paul after his mansion was raided by the FBI one year ago.

In August 2020, it was reported that the FBI had raided YouTuber Jake Paul’s Calabasas mansion. Aerial footage showed agents seizing firearms from the property, after the the FBI had been granted a search warrant in connection with an ongoing investigation.

One FBI spokesperson told media at the time the search was connected to Jake’s arrest at a shopping centre in Arizona during a Black Lives Matter protest triggered by the murder of George Floyd back in May 2020.

Video circulated of Jake Paul at the time inside the mall while it was being looted. He was arrested for trespass and charged with a misdemeanor, but the charges were dropped and the FBI started an investigation.

Neither Jake Paul nor his brother Logan spoke much about the incident, apart from a couple of sporadic updates while the press tried to catch up on what had happened.

It’s now been reported by TMZ that no charges will be filed against him, as confirmed by a statement sent to The Verge by Jake Paul’s lawyers.

In the statement, Paul’s legal team said they “are pleased that the United States Attorney reached the conclusion that no criminal charges should be filed.” We’re sure they are.

In April this year, Jake Paul sold the mansion in question, for nearly $1 million AUD less than he purchased it for. Apparently he didn't even clean the place up before selling it; leaving it half-abandoned and awash with stains. Rich people are a trip.
