Will Smith was visited by cops on Tuesday afternoon.
Two days after the actor slapped Chris Rock at the Oscars, the Los Angeles Sheriff’s department arrived at his house.
At 2:40 p.m, a patrol car arrived outside the King Richar star’s mansion.
Deputy Lizette Salcon, a spokesperson for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, told Page Six that officers arrived after a drone was reported flying through the neighborhood.
“We just sent that unit over there to try to locate the drone and see if there was a paparazzi or what was going on,” Salcon told us, “but when the deputies got there, they weren’t able to locate the drone. It had already left the area.”
She did not confirm whether it was the Smiths who reported the drone. It was not clear yet if the Smith family had approached the police, or their neighbor had done so.
While Chris decided not to press charges, Steve Cooley, Los Angeles County District Attorney from 2000 to 2012, told the New York Post on Tuesday that Will could face legal consequences anyway.
“The [Los Angeles] city attorney could bring charges based upon the evidence without necessarily relying upon the victim,” Steve Cooley, the Los Angeles County District Attorney from 2000 to 2012, told The Journalists on Tuesday.
