Sheriff raids Bieber's home
A County Sheriff's spokesperson says Justin Bieber is accused of pelting his neighbour’s home with eggs.
LOS ANGELES - A search of teen pop star Justin Bieber's home was conducted on Tuesday on suspicion of felony vandalism after the Boyfriend singer was accused of pelting his neighbour's home with eggs, A Los Angeles County Sheriff's spokesperson said.
"We are in the process of executing a search warrant on Justin Bieber's home," spokesperson Steve Whitmore said, adding that Bieber and others at his Calabasas, California, home, about 48 kilometers northwest of Los Angeles were detained during the search.
Bieber, 19, is also being questioned by sheriff's deputies about the 9 January incident in the upscale gated community, in which he is alleged to have thrown eggs against his neighbour's home, Whitmore said.
The vandalism case is being treated as a felony because it caused "thousands and thousands of dollars of damage" to the house, Whitmore said.
It is not known what triggered the alleged incident between Bieber and his neighbour, but the Canada-born pop star has had several publicized run-ins with his neighbours.
Last year, Bieber was accused of speeding through the neighbourhood in a Ferrari sports car and also spitting on his neighbour during a confrontation over parties at the singer's home. Prosecutors did not bring charges against Bieber in either case.
