Justin Bieber’s pal, Xavier Smith, also known as Lil Za, who was arrested on Tuesday morning at the singer’s California mansion for alleged drug possession, has been released on bail from Lost Hills Sheriff’s station late Tuesday night.
According to Mailonline, before he was released, however, he got himself arrested again – this time for vandalism inside the jail.
According to a law enforcement source, lil Za, was preparing for his release at the station when he lost his temper and damaged a phone inside the holding cell he had spent the entire day in.
Minutes away from posting the $20,000 bail for possession of felony narcotics found during a raid on Bieber’s home, Za was re-booked for vandalism according to Lt. Michael Williams after he apparently furiously banged the handset against the dial and his bail was readjusted to a reported $70,000.
Xavier 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,’ said Lt. Michael Williams to HollywoodLife.com.
Williams confirmed to MTV News that Za was released from prison late on Tuesday night and that contrary to other reports he damaged ‘not destroyed’ the phone in his holding cell.
Earlier in the day, according to TMZ, Los Angeles law enforcement officials revealed that the drug found ‘in plain sight’ at Justin Bieber’s mansion in a Tuesday morning raid was molly, a form of ecstasy, and not cocaine as originally believed.
The drug was found along with the prescription sedative Xanax as police executed a felony warrant to search the Canadian singer’s property.
The warrant was related to allegations that the singer had been responsible for throwing eggs at a neighbor’s home last Thursday – causing more than $20,000 worth of damage.
The singer’s good friend, rapper Lil Za, was arrested after officers found the drugs during the raid on the 19-year-old singer’s home.
TMZ reports that what police originally believed to be cocaine was actually the drug molly, or MDMA.
‘You have to analyze any evidence to see what comes forward,’ spokesman Steve Whitmore said. ‘It may not be that particular narcotic,’ said LA County Sheriff Steve Whitmore.
‘Let’s just wait and see, but we’re fairly certain it’s a controlled substance,’ Whitmore said according to the LA Times.
The difference between cocaine and molly is about two years in prison.
Whereas the cocaine could have landed him in prison for three years, the molly possession could mean closer to one year for him.
Officials says Bieber was ‘not connected’ to the drugs.
