Lil Za Arrested Twice in One Day

Teen popped for vandalism following drug arrest at Justin Beiber's house.

Published January 15, 2014

It's been a rough 24 hours for Lil Za. 

Hours after Tueday's (Jan. 14) drug possession arrest at Justin Bieber's house, the 19-year-old was busted for vandalism on his way out of jail, reports TMZ.

The teen, born Xavier Smith, allegedly "flipped out" then "shattered" a jail phone according to the celebrity site, and was promptly rearrested just ahead of posting $20,000 bail in the drug incident.

It is unclear what may have set him off but depending on the phone's value, he could land a second felony charge to go along with drug possession.

Za can at least count one small break in the last day. What authorities originally believed to be cocaine in his possession at JB's house is more than likely Molly (a powdery form of ecstasy), which carries up to a year in prison, compared to three years for cocaine possession. Police also found Xanax in the house, believed to be Za's.

A spokesperson for the Los Angeles County Sherriff's Department said that the weight of drugs found in his possession was not a "significant amount."

For now, Za remains quiet about the double arrests, as does his buddy Bieber. Even though it was the Canadian crooner's alleged egg attack on a neighbors home that led to a police raid and Za's arrest, Bieber has stayed mum on the situation; and regardless of his reported bad behavior, fans are showing their support via the hashtag #WeAreWithYouJustin, created in the aftermath of yesterday's activity. is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
