Jake Paul, famous for his viral YouTube pranks, will not be charged in connection with a looting spree in Arizona last year, said authorities on Thursday.
Paul, who has 20 million YouTube subscribers, was being investigated after he filmed looting at a shopping mall in Scottsdale, Arizona in May last year, at the peak of Black lives Matter protest.

The United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Arizona, based upon the investigations and evidence, has decided not to persue charges against Jake Paul for his conduct.
Misdemeanor charges against Paul had been already dismissed.
The FBI said last year that it was investigating allegations of criminal acts at the Scottsdale Fashion Square, that happen around nationwide street demonstrations in May last year, over the killing of unarmed Black man George Floyd.
The FBI agents had also raided Jake’s mansion outside Los Angeles.
Police said that Jake had taken a part in unrest.
Jake Paul, at that time, refused that he or anyone with him took part in looting, saying he was only documenting what happened.
