The Scottsdale Police Department released a statement where they claimed that Jake Paul was inside a mall to film the looting and vandalism that took place there during protests. They also have footage where it allegedly appears that Paul was inside the mall filming the events happening around him. Here is what the statement further said:
“Our investigation has revealed that Paul was present after the protest was declared an unlawful assembly and the rioters were ordered to leave the area by the police. Paul also unlawfully entered and remained inside of the mall when it was closed.”
As reports came forward of Jake Paul’s possible arrest, the YouTuber released his statement:
“To be absolutely clear, neither I nor anyone in our group was engaged in any looting or vandalism. For context, we spent the day doing our part to peacefully protest one of the most horrific injustices our country has ever seen, which led to us being tear-gassed for filming the events and brutalisty that were unfolding in Arizona.”
