Racial graffiti was spray-painted on the front gate of NBA star LeBron James’ home in the Brentwood area overnight, police said.
The graffiti, which included the N-word, was on an outer gate of the residence, said Los Angeles police officer Aareon Jefferson.
Officers were sent to the home about 6:45 a.m., but by the time they got there, the graffiti had been covered up by property management staff, police said.
The case is being investigated by personnel from the LAPD’s West Los Angeles Station. According to TMZ.com, investigators are looking for security footage from neighbors that may show the suspect or suspects.
Records show that James bought the house in 2015, but it does not appear that he lives there on a regular basis, TMZ reported.
The Cleveland Cavaliers star is reportedly in the Bay Area gearing up for Game 1 of the NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors, which starts Thursday.
