Los Angeles County sheriff’s investigators have presented evidence to prosecutors for a possible felony vandalism case against Justin Bieber
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department wants Justin Bieber to be prosecuted for felony vandalism for throwing eggs at his neighbour’s house in California in January because he allegedly caused $20,000 in damage.
The 19-year-old has been charged with misdemeanor offenses in Miami and Toronto in recent weeks. But prosecutors in California have rejected three previous cases against Bieber that accused him of reckless driving, attacking a paparazzo and spitting on a neighbor.
Lt. Dave Thompson told gossip website TMZ.com:
”I went to the D.A.’s office today with the paperwork, and I want a felony. Of course I want a felony.”
The D.A. is expected to make a decision on the case, which was originally filed as a misdemeanour
Justin’s friend Lil Za, 20, was charged with felony possession of Ecstasy and oxycodone, and breaking a pay phone while in police custody after being arrested when police raided the Canadian star’s home following the egg-throwing incident. If convicted on all counts, the budding rapper could face up to nine years in jail.
Legal issues are building up for the 19-year-old singer.
The ‘Heartbreaker’ hitmaker is to appear in court in Miami on March 3 over charges of driving under the influence (DUI), resisting arrest and driving with an invalid licence following his arrest there on January 23.
Justin’s lawyer Roy Black has already filed a written plea of not guilty.
Justin, who partied with P. Diddy and Rick Ross in Atlanta, Georgia on Wednesday night (05.02.14), was also recently charged with allegedly assaulting a limousine driver last year while leaving a basketball game in Toronto.
