Xavier Domonique Smith, who performs under the stage name “Lil Za,” pleaded no contest Wednesday to one felony count of possession of a controlled substance, ecstasy, and a misdemeanor count of damaging a prison or jail.

In addition to probation, Smith was also ordered to perform 20 days of Caltrans or similar community labor, enter a drug program, pay a $1,000 fine and $600 in restitution, according to a news release from the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

The 20-year-old was arrested on January 14 during a search of Bieber’s Calabasas home in connection with an alleged egg-throwing incident.

During the search, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies found drugs belonging to Smith, the release stated.

While in custody at the sheriff’s station, prosecutors alleged Smith damaged a phone in a holding cell when he tried to pull it off the wall.

 Sheriff’s Department served a search warrant Tuesday at Justin Bieber’s Calabasas mansion in connection with a recent egg-throwing incident that a neighbor said caused $20,000 in damage, authorities said.
