Justin Bieber may be 'charged with criminal vandalism' over egg-throwing incident
The pop star is said to have caused several thousands of dollars worth of damage to his neighbour's house
Troubled pop star Justin Bieber may reportedly be charged with criminal vandalism in connection with an egg-tossing episode that allegedly damaged his neighbour's home.
It is not known whether Bieber will be charged with a misdemeanour or a felony, but a decision is expected to be made this week, according to TMZ.
The 20-year-old “Baby” singer is said to have caused several thousands of dollars worth of damage, according to some reports of the alleged incident at the property in Los Angeles in January.
The case was referred to the District Attorney’s office.
Video footage obtained by TMZ appears to depict Bieber goading his neighbour and a surveillance video seized in a raid at the star’s house reportedly shows him in the vicinity of the property at the time of the attack.
According to the website, the neighbour involved said that the prosecutor involved in the case told them: “If this isn't a felony, nothing is.”
It is not the first time Bieber has found himself on the wrong side of the law. He is due to stand trial in the US next month on charges of driving under the influence, resisting arrest and driving with an expired licence, after a street race incident in Florida in January.
And earlier this month he was forced to apologise after two videos emerged of him as a teenager making racist comments about black people, including using the n-word.
