CALABASAS — A federal warrant was served Wednesday at YouTube star Jake Paul’s home in Calabasas.
The warrant was being served in connection with an ongoing investigation, said Laura Eimiller of the FBI’s Los Angeles office.
No arrests are planned, Eimiller said. Further details were not being released because the warrant is under seal, she said.
It was unclear if Paul was at the location when FBI agents served the warrant, according to TMZ, which first reported the story.
After the raid, “a small militia” left Paul’s home in armored trucks, TMZ reported:
“It looks like a mini military parade, with several guys wearing SWAT and/or tactical gear hanging off the sides (of vehicles) … in addition to whoever was inside. By our count, there seems to have been at least 20 people or so on the ground executing the search warrant.”
Paul is known for his often controversial YouTube stunts. He hosted a party at the Calabasas home a couple weeks ago that drew criticism on social media after guests were shown not wearing face coverings or social distancing.
