The fallout over Justin Bieber's latest fiasco dubbed "egg-gate" by the press, in which he's accused of causing $20,000 worth of damage to his neighbor's house by hurling raw eggs at it last Thursday, continues to grow. During a Monday raid of Justin's Calabasas mansion, his pal rapper Lil Za was busted for possession of drugs, according to the Daily News on Jan. 14. Now some are pondering the idea of whether Bieber's latest run-in with the law could end up in his deportation.
Justin Bieber's BFF Lil Za was the unfortunate one who was clipped for felony drug possession as cops descended on the Canadian crooner's mansion Monday to search for evidence related to egg-gate. And to make things worse, the rapper was arrested a second time inside the jail for vandalism after busting a pay phone.
Initial reports say the drugs found in Za's possession were cocaine, but now it's being said it's possible the drugs were Xanax and Ecstacy. In either case, both carry felonies.
Lil Za was just moments away from being bailed out on $20,000 bond when he allegedly went ballistic on a pay phone. That added the vandalism charge and another $50,000 to his bond.
It all started Thursday night when 19-year-old Justin's neighbor Jeffrey Schwartz phoned 911 claiming the singer was pelting his home with eggs.
TMZ posted a video which doesn't show Bieber directly, but has audio which sounds a lot like his voice during the attack. Justin has had previous run-ins with Schwartz, including one incident in which he was accused of spitting in his face.
Neighbors including Schwartz have complained multiple times to police about Justin speeding up and down the streets of their upscale neighborhood.
A source close to Schwartz said of Bieber to the News, "He’s a little punk head. He thinks these are funny pranks, but they’re not. Parties that go until 5 a.m. with the music blasting aren’t funny in a family-oriented neighborhood. He needs to own up to what he is doing. He’s got major issues".
During Monday's raid, sources close to law enforcement officials say they were looking for any evidence tying Justin to the egg-throwing crime. This included video security surveillance from his home.
Meanwhile, damage in excess of $400 bumps this possible crime up to a felony charge, and some are throwing out the possibility that if Justin were to be convicted in the case, he could be deported back to Canada.
However, immigration attorney Michael Wildes tells E! News that deportation isn't likely in an egg-throwing case. Should Bieber face an assault or battery charge, that could be more serious.
Typically the U.S. Government doesn't scrutinize Visa's unless there's evidence of Visa fraud, a gun charge, or more serious crimes such as burglary.
But Wildes does admit that if he were advising Justin, he'd tell him to, "clean up his act, pronto".
