(Newser) – A Los Angeles home owned by LeBron James was vandalized Wednesday morning, the n-word spray-painted on its front gate, according to TMZ. Los Angeles police confirmed the vandalism to USA Today, though the spokesperson didn't offer specifics on what racial slur was used. The Cleveland Cavaliers player, whose primary home during the NBA season is in Ohio, was not at the Brentwood home at the time, and TMZ says it "does not appear he lives there on any regular basis." Property management has already covered over the racial slur, and police are investigating the incident as a hate crime. (Read more LeBron James stories.)
