Justin Bieber faces yet another criminal charge in the United States
After a long and drawn out investigation into the alleged egging of his neighbour’s house, the singer faces another felony
Justin Bieber will probably be wishing he hadn’t started channeling Bart Simpson after all.
Because after a long and drawn out investigation into the alleged egging of his neighbour’s house, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department have sent the case to the district attorney with the strong recommendation that they prosecute the pop singer.
On top of his existing charges for resisting arrest in Miami (charges for DUI and drag racing have since been dropped), and allegedly punching a limo driver in Toronto, Bieber now faces a serious felony charge for vandalism, after he caused the property owners $20,000 of damage.
“I went to the D.A.'s Office today with the paperwork, and I want a felony. Of course I want a felony,” Lieutenant Dave Thompson told TMZ.
In video footage of the alleged incident, published by TMZ previously, Bieber also appears to be heard taunting the neighbour as he opened yolky fire on the property.
This could mean that the singer potentially faces three separate court hearings in three different cities: Miami, Los Angeles and Toronto.
During a brief detention, US customs officials used drug-sniffing dogs to comb the Canadian singer’s plane, according to a US law enforcement source briefed on the incident.
No illegal substances were found and no charges were brought, but the 19-year-old and his fellow passengers were reportedly questioned for several hours.
The search of the jet was conducted after US customs officials believed that they smelled marijuana on some of Bieber’s entourage.
Earlier this week, it emerged that Bieber’s ex-girlfriend, former Disney star Selena Gomez, had checked into a rehab facility for two weeks last month. However, her representative stressed the stay was to treat emotional issues, rather than tackle substance abuse.
Meanwhile, a petition for Bieber to be deported from the US back to his native Canada has garnered more than 100,000 signatures. An official White House response is now expected.
