Lil Za charged with three felonies following Bieber house raid

Justin Bieber's rapper friend Lil Za has been charged with three felonies following his drug arrest at the pop star's home in January (14).

The aspiring hip-hop star, real name Xavier Smith, was taken into custody after police found a bag of illegal substances during a raid on the Baby hitmaker's home in Calabasas, California as they investigated accusations that Bieber had pelted a neighbour's house with eggs.


Smith was arrested for a second time for vandalising a telephone at the Los Angeles County Sheriff's jail, where he was being held shortly before posting bail.


He has now been charged with two counts of felony possession of a controlled substance, for MDMA (a form of ecstasy) and prescription painkiller oxycodone, and a third charge for vandalising the phone in jail.


The rapper could face up to nine years in jail if convicted on all counts, according to TMZ.com.
