When Paul discovered there was a stranger—who, according to police, simply wanted to meet the YouTuber—sitting on his couch, he began rolling video. With his father, Greg, next to him, Logan Paul looked at the camera and said, “There’s a kid on my couch in that room over there who I don’t think I invited over.”
His dad asked him if he recognized the person.
“I have no idea who it is,” Paul said. “Yo, what the fuck?”
Paul approached the stranger with the camera, even though he made it clear he didn’t know if the person was armed. The man woke up as Paul yelled at him—and then discovered that the stranger was charging his phone.
“There was a point where I looked around and I was like, ‘Is this even my house? Do I even live here?’” Paul said.
Eventually, the police arrived and escorted the intruder out in handcuffs.
Here’s the entire video.
Paul originally decided not to press charges, saying, “If there’s one thing I’ve learned in the past month, it’s forgiveness.” A day later, though, Paul said he changed his mind because he wondered what would have happened if one of his housemates had been hurt.
Paul was recently caught in an international furor after posting a video of a dead body during his trip to a Japanese “suicide forest.”
Following the break-in incident, Paul said he’s beefing up his security at his mansion, and he brandished a machete during his vlog and said somebody was going to get sliced if they entered his home without permission.
“It did shake me up a little bit,” Paul said. “It is weird having somebody invade your privacy and their motive being unclear about it.”
Which apparently is quite different than when somebody invades privacy with the sole motive of pageviews and clicks.
