Police Are Investigating A Woman’s Report That She “Blacked Out” And May Have Been Drugged At YouTuber Jake Paul’s Party

During the party in Calabasas, at least one person was arrested for public intoxication, while two “sick” people were transported to a local hospital, Los Angeles authorities said.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department is investigating a complaint from a woman who said she suspected that she was drugged after she "blacked out" at a party hosted by YouTuber Jake Paul on Saturday night, a police official told BuzzFeed News.

A spokesperson for the Lost Hills/Malibu Station said police received the report from the woman Sunday night, a day after Paul threw a birthday party for the rapper Desiigner at Paul's Calabasas mansion.

The woman told police that she may have blacked out after "something was put in her drink," Sgt. Foss, who didn't provide his first name, told BuzzFeed News on Monday.

A spokesperson for the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department confirmed that detectives were looking into "a possible single occurrence of unwillful impairment" related to the party.

"On Sunday, May 5, 2019, the Malibu Lost Hills Sheriff’s Station was made aware of a possible single occurrence of unwillful impairment related to a party attended on May 4, 2019," the spokesperson said in a statement. "Detectives are in the beginning stages of information gathering for the incident. The Sheriff’s Department treats allegations such as these seriously, and will use all known resources to investigate."

Foss said that at least one partygoer was arrested for public intoxication and was later released. He said he "believes" there may have been another person also arrested for public intoxication. Authorities initially went to Paul's mansion after receiving a noise complaint, Foss said.

At least two "sick" people at the party were transported to a local hospital between 1 and 3 a.m., Jeremy Stafford, a spokesperson for the Los Angeles Fire Department's Station 68, told BuzzFeed News on Monday.

Station 68 responded to Paul's house on three separate calls Saturday night.

Two calls were for a "sick person," and one call came after a partygoer jumped onto another person's property and scared an elderly woman, who fell down, Stafford said.

He did not say how the two people at the party got sick or what they suffered from.

Representatives for Paul and Desiigner did not immediately respond to BuzzFeed News' request for comment. YouTube also did not immediately return a request for comment.

Videos and photos from the party were widely shared on social media.
