Justin Bieber to be charged in neighborhood egg-throwing case
Justin Bieber will be charged with misdemeanor vandalism stemming from an egging incident at his former neighbor’s home in Calabasas, prosecutors announced Wednesday.
The Los Angeles County district attorney plans to charge the pop star with one misdemeanor charge of vandalism for allegedly throwing eggs at the home in the 25000 block of Prado Del Grandios on Jan. 9.
Authorities said the damage totaled $20,000, which could have qualified it as a felony.
Bieber will not appear in person for his arraignment, which was scheduled for Wednesday afternoon in Los Angeles County Superior Court in Van Nuys, prosecutors said.
Through his attorney, Bieber has denied any wrongdoing.
The expected charge comes after a series of run-ins this year between the 20-year-old “Baby” singer and law enforcement.
A woman in May said Bieber accused her of recording him at the Sherman Oaks Castle Park miniature golf course and batting cages then reached into her purse and tried to pull out her phone. The woman said she then struggled with Bieber over the phone. The Los Angeles city attorney’s office declined to file charges in the incident.
Bieber was arrested Jan. 23 in Miami Beach for allegedly driving under the influence, driving with an expired license and resisting arrest. Six days later, Toronto police arrested him on suspicion of assaulting a limousine driver last December.
