FBI’s raid at Jake’s residence.

He strictly mentioned that if he finds anyone doing wrong, he immediately cuts ties from that person.
Jake coming under the suspect radar: The actual reason.
Jake Paul, Izadi, and another YouTuber filmed themselves at Scottsdale protest, over the assassination of George Floyd. The police arrested them due to the rally and charged them with trespassing as well as being a part of unlawful assembly after the looters committed a heist in the Scottsdale Fashion Square mall. This matter initially was with the Scottsdale Police department but was later handed over to the FBI.
Well, it’s not that common that you would witness a dozen SWAT officers loaded in armoured vehicles arriving at your residence early in the morning. The FBI questioned both Izadi and Jake regarding their presence in Arizona at the time of the heist. What is the most critical question in the current state is how a matter of trespassing involved the FBI.
One of Jake’s friends vouched for him, stating that Jake is framed in this matter owing to his status. At the same time, Izadi is dragged into this as he is a good friend. However, the FBI reported no arrests in the said matter.
