Bieber's friend Lil Za charged with felony
Prosecutors have charged Justin Bieber's friend Lil Za with two counts of drug possession after detectives found him with ecstasy and oxycodone in the singer's mansion earlier this month.
The would-be rapper was arrested on Jan. 14 when sheriff's detectives searched Bieber's mansion looking for evidence in an egg-tossing incident that caused thousands of dollars in damage to his neighbour's home.
Lil Za, whose real name is Xavier Domonique Smith, was the only person arrested during the search. Bieber remains under investigation for felony vandalism.
Smith was also charged with damaging or destroying a jailhouse phone. All three charges are felonies.
Jail records do not list an attorney for the 20-year-old.
Authorities initially said they arrested Smith on suspicion of cocaine possession, but they amended the charges after testing the drugs.
