Law enforcement visited Will Smith’s mansion in Calabasas, California, on Tuesday to investigate a report about a suspicious drone flying overhead. Los Angeles sheriffs were seen at the actor's home just two days after he assaulted Chris Rock during the 2022 Oscars. Deputy Lizette Salcon, a spokesperson for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, told Page Six that police visited the area after someone reported a drone flying through the neighborhood. It is unclear whether the Smiths called in the complaint, or if it was from another neighbor close by. “We just sent that unit over there to try to locate the drone and see if there was a paparazzi or what was going on,” Salcon told the outlet, “but when the deputies got there, they weren’t able to locate the drone. It had already left the area.”


Will Smith recently shocked the world when he took the stage at the 2022 Oscars to slap Chris Rock across the face. “Will Smith just smacked the sh*t out of me,” a stunned Rock said as Smith headed back to his front-row seat. The 57-year-old comedian had joked about how Pinkett Smith should star in G.I. Jane 2, referring to her bald hairdo. No one removed Smith from the ceremony after he just assaulted another man. Smith ended up with an Academy Award for playing the title role in King Richard just moments later. In his speech, he broke down and apologized to the Academy but not Rock. Later, Will apologized to Rock via Instagram on Monday evening, sharing, “Jokes at my expense are a part of the job, but a joke about Jada’s medical condition was too much for me to bear and I reacted emotionally. I would like to publicly apologize to you, Chris. I was out of line and I was wrong. I am embarrassed and my actions were not indicative of the man I want to be. There is no place for violence in a world of love and kindness.”


According to Deadline, Rock has decided not to file a police report. Smith could have faced up to six months behind bars and a fine of up to $100,000, if Rock had done so with the LAPD. “LAPD investigative entities are aware of an incident between two individuals during the Academy Awards program,” the police said in a statement. “The incident involved one individual slapping another,” they added. “The individual involved has declined to file a police report. If the involved party desires a police report at a later date, LAPD will be available to complete an investigative report.” The comedian still has up to six months to file a report. Rock recently opened his comedy show in Boston on Wednesday with, "How was your weekend?" He did not comment any further about the incident. According to The Hollywood Reporter, he said, “I don’t have a bunch of sh*t about what happened, so if you came to hear that, I have a whole show I wrote before this weekend, and I’m still kind of processing what happened,” Rock said. “So at some point I’ll talk about that sh*t. And it’ll be serious, and it’ll be funny.”
