Earlier today we learned that police raided the home of Justin Bieber with a search warrant in the wake of an alleged egg-throwing incident that Bieber participated in against a neighbor’s home last week. Right now we learn that police have arrested JB‘s BFF and sometimes housemate Lil’ Za on charges of drug possession. As I understand it, Za (no idea what his real name is) was at Bieber‘s home when police raided earlier today and was allegedly found in possession of unnamed illegal drugs. Yikes. Read on to learn more. UPDATE: TMZ has confirmed that the drug in question was cocaine.
Justin Bieber’s BFF Lil Za has just been arrested for drug possession at the singer’s home — during an early morning raid stemming from the Bieber egg attack on his neighbor. So far, no word on what type of drugs officials believe Za was carrying at the time of his arrest … but we do know Za was arrested on FELONY drug possession. Za is a rapper who once lived at Bieber’s Calabasas home … and he’s been tight with JB for years.
Thus far, Za is the only person arrested so … it looks like The Biebs is in the clear, for now. A few PITNB readers below have commented that it is possible that Lil’ Za took the rap for the drugs so that JB wouldn’t be arrested but … all of that is merely (very interesting) speculation. HMMM. I understand police dismantled and took possession of JB‘s security system for further investigation regarding the egg-throwing incident. I’m pretty sure we haven’t heard the last of this so … stay tuned. The saga is sure to continue.
UPDATE: TMZ has confirmed that Lil’ Za was arrested for cocaine possession today:
Justin Bieber’s BFF Lil Za has just been arrested for COCAINE POSSESSION at the singer’s home — during the early morning raid stemming from the Bieber egg attack on his neighbor. A rep for the L.A. County Sheriff’s Dept. confirmed the arrest for FELONY drug possession … and said the cocaine was “in plain view” during the raid. Officials say Bieber was “not connected” to the cocaine.
OOOOOOOOH man. Justin Bieber is getting closer and closer to real trouble now. If Za is taking the fall for him, then JB better be the best BFF ever from here on out. Dang. Who knew that an idiotic egg-throwing incident could turn into such a huge criminal ordeal? And it ain’t over yet … continue to stay tuned.
