A Los Angeles property owned by basketball icon Lebron James has been vandalized by racists.
Police were called to the home early on Wednesday (31May17) to investigate after the Cleveland Cavaliers star’s front gate was spray painted with the ‘N’ word.
Los Angeles Police Department Officer Aeron Jefferson reveals the slur had already been covered up by the time cops arrived to inspect the damage.
Detectives are now hoping to find clues about the identity of the racists behind the vandalism by scouring security footage from neighbors’ homes, reports TMZ.com.
The sports superstar, who purchased the pad in 2015, was not present at the time of the incident.
The Ohio native is thought to be in Oakland, California preparing for the first game of the NBA Finals on Thursday (01Jun17), when defending champions the Cavaliers will take on the Golden State Warriors.
