Bieber's Friend Charged With 3 Felonies

He ain't the only bad boy in his rat pack: Justin Bieber's friend Lil Za was charged with three felonies. Is Biebs hanging out with the wrong crowd? I mean, this guy seems like bad news (like, in the "break-the-law" sense, I'm sure he gives great hugs or whatever).

Only two weeks ago, Lil Za (whose real name is the way-less-badass Xavier Smith), was arrested for cocaine at Bieb's home. This was during the surprise party known as the police raid that happened after Bieber conducted an egg raid, and as we all know, throwing eggs at a neighbor's house is just something stars do when provoked (SARCASM).

Za has been charged with two felony counts of possession of Ecstasy and Oxycontin. You know, the casual things you put in your back pocket when you leave your house each day. On top of that, he's also been charged with a felony for allegedly ripping a phone off a wall while he was inside of a jail. Hey, it takes skill to get arrested while in jail.

E! Online reports that he could face up to nine years in prison if he's convicted of all three felonies, and his bail, which was originally only $20,000, has been jacked up another $50,000. Is someone gonna come to his rescue?

Poor Biebs! What a rough month he's had, what with his own shit, and now his friends heading off to jail, too. THIS IS WHY BELIEBING IS IMPORTANT, YOU GUYS. Remember when he told us to stay strong last week? So let's DO THAT.
