This isn’t the first time Justin Bieber has been Public Enemy No. 1 in his Calabasas neighborhood — there was the speeding, the alleged spitting, the battery allegations — but after the singer was allegedly caught on video egging his neighbor’s house on Jan. 9, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department believes that they finally have a legitimate chance to take Justin down.
The authorities are actually hoping to charge Justin with a felony, according to TMZ. After the egging incident on Jan. 9, two detectives met with Justin’s neighbor and urged him to get estimates on the damage the prank caused.
The police are reportedly sure that with video evidence of the egg onslaught, and proof that it caused extensive damage, they would be able to nail Justin. In California, if an act of vandalism causes over $400 in damage, it is considered a felony, according to TMZ. And because Justin chose to egg a house with expensive Venetian plaster work, the damage from his prank could reportedly total up to tens of thousands of dollars.
Justin has evaded the wrath of the LA County Sheriffs before, and that’s why they’re reportedly so keen on gunning for him this time. Now that he’s in their sights, they do not want to let him get loose. The case will reportedly be presented to the District Attorney within the week.
At around 7:30 on Jan. 9, the neighbor allegedly heard a banging on his house and, after stepping out onto a second-floor balcony, saw that Justin was throwing eggs.
In video obtained by TMZ, the neighbor and a person who sounds like Justin can then be heard having a heated verbal argument, before a few more eggs are hurled. Police were called immediately after the confrontation.Follow @Infocelebrity on Twitter!
