On the same day that a search warrant was served on YouTuber Jake Paul’s home in California, Scottsdale Police announced the department would dismiss charges against him in the interest of the community.
The department says the decision to stop pursuing the misdemeanor charges against Paul, as well as Arman Izadi and Andrew Leon, is so that an FBI investigation into the Fashion Square looting can be completed.
A statement from the FBI sent to 12 News says the warrant was served as part of a federal investigation into the Fashion Square looting but the FBI can’t comment further. The full statement is below:
“The FBI is investigating allegations of criminal acts surrounding the incident at Scottsdale Fashion Square in May 2020. 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.”
