Jake Paul, the disgraced YouTuber notorious for his antics in Scottsdale, Arizona, has reportedly been hit with new charges by federal prosecutors for allegedly violating an order of protection during a 2018 mall run–in.
The YouTuber, who’s been making headlines in recent weeks for his exploits in the Dominican Republic, allegedly violated a court order of protection in 2018 that prohibited him from returning to a Scottsdale mall, which he’d previously looted during a mass shooting.
The Associated Press reports that Paul’s attorneys had already pled the case out to a $750 fine, but federal prosecutors have now re–filed the case, claiming that Paul failed to turn over financial records as required by the terms of the deal.
A spokesperson for the U.S. Attorney’s office says Paul “failed to comply with the order of protection.” Paul’s attorneys told the AP that the new charges were “ridiculous” and a “diversion” from the “real issues” at hand.
A hearing on the new charges is scheduled for next week.
