Justin Bieber's condo is new hot spot for Beverly Hills police calls

Beverly Hills police officers respond six times over the weekend to Justin Bieber's new luxury condo

Beverly Hills police have a new favorite haunt: Justin Bieber's condo.

Police officers responded six times over the weekend to the condo -- twice for fan misconduct and four times because neighbors complained about noise coming from an apparent party, said Beverly Hills police Sgt. Matt Subin.

Bieber was not cited but was given verbal warnings. He is on probation for egging the home of a former neighbor in Calabasas.

Bieber recently moved to a five-story luxury building, acquiring a penthouse apartment and another apartment inside the complex that has a rooftop lounge and party area.

The pop singer who has had more brushes with the law in recent months than chart hits recently pleaded no contest to throwing eggs at his former neighbor's home in Calabasas.

The incident was the culmination of dozens of calls to deputies complaining about Bieber's home. That same neighbor had previously alleged Bieber spat in his face after he complained about partying by the singer and his friends.

Under a plea deal reached with the Los Angeles County district attorney's office, the pop star pleaded no contest to misdemeanor vandalism in the incident and was ordered to pay $80,900 in restitution.

Authorities said the damage totaled more than $20,000, which could have qualified him for a felony.

Bieber has been ordered to serve two years of probation, to complete a 12-week anger-management program, to perform five days of community service and to stay away from his former neighbor, Jeffrey Schwartz, and his family for two years.

The restitution amount was ordered after prosecutor Alan Yochelson said Schwartz and his family spent a large amount of money to repair their "dream home" in the 25000 block of Prado del Grandioso that was damaged Jan. 9.

Bieber sold the Calabasas home to Khloe Kardashian for $7.2 million.

Bieber also has been arrested by Toronto police investigating an alleged assault on a limousine driver and by Miami Beach police who took him into custody on suspicion of driving under the influence.

Those cases are pending.
