Lil Za was arrested again following an alleged incident with the jailhouse phone. Justin Bieber’s friend was previously arrested after investigators found cocaine in the singer’s home.
Lil Za was reportedly arrested on felony charges for a second time as the friend of the famous pop singer allegedly smashed the jail phone. Lil Za, a rapper with close ties to Bieber, was also formally charged with possession of narcotics following a raid on Bieber’s home in Los Angeles.
Reports indicate that upon his release from his initial drug charges, Lil Za became enraged and destroyed a phone in the jailhouse. Lt. Michael Williams told reporters,
“Zavier Smith was additionally charged with an incident that resulted in felony vandalism concerning a phone located in the holding cell this afternoon at the Lost Hills Sheriff’s Station.”
Witnesses say that the young rapper was on the phone when he got angry, banged the receiver numerous times against the wall and finally pulled the receiver off the phone entirely. Due to the additional charges, Lil Za’s bail is now at $75,000.
Reps on behalf of Lil Za have declined to comment on the incident until the rapper is released. Police are also investigating an incident in which Justin Bieber’s neighbor’s home was vandalized. Both Justin Bieber and Lil Za may be implicated in the incident.
