Justin Bieber under investigation in egging of neighbor’s home
Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies continued to investigate allegations that Justin Bieber threw eggs at the home of a neighbor in a tony section of Calabasas.
It marks the latest clash between the pop star and his neighbors, who have accused him of throwing loud parties and speeding through the neighborhood.
The neighbor called authorities about 7:40 p.m. claiming someone was pelting his home with eggs, said sheriff’s Sgt. Dan Nagelmann of the Malibu/Lost Hills station.
The neighbor was home with his daughter at the time, Nagelmann said, adding that deputies who went to the scene found no one outside.
Bieber’s publicist did not return a call seeking comment.
Bieber has been at the center of a number of controversies that have caused friction with his neighbors in the wealthy, gated community where he lives.
A grainy video posted on TMZ allegedly documents the incident, where a man standing in the doorway of a home exchanges expletives with a voice outside, before telling another person in the house to call authorities.
“I got another one for you, actually,” the person outside yells back in the video, before apparently hitting the house with more eggs.
Sheriff’s deputies said video and photos were submitted as evidence.
Nagelmann said the neighbor told deputies he had seen Bieber throwing the eggs. The offense in the initial police report is listed as misdemeanor vandalism, according to the sheriff’s department.
Authorities said it was unknown what prompted the egging.
