Justin Bieber is under investigation for felony vandalism stemming from a Jan. 9 incident in which eggs were tossed at Justin's Calabasas neighbor's mansion, caused roughly $20,000 in damage. Bieber's home was even raided by cops last month as they searched for evidence linking him to the crime.
Los Angeles County sheriff's investigators have reportedly presented evidence to prosecutors for a possible felony vandalism charge against the 19-year-old Canadian singer. Lt. Dave Thompson told TMZ on Feb. 6, "I went to the D.A.'s Office today with the paperwork, and I want a felony. Of course I want a felony."
Bieber has been under investigation since eggs were thrown at his neighbor's home last month, resulting in the thousands of dollars in damage.
The case was serious enough for detectives to execute a search warrant. Cops searched Bieber's $6.5 million home looking for surveillance footage or other evidence linking him with the crime on Jan. 14.
TMZ previously posted video shot by the neighbor shortly after the egging that was too dark to see Bieber, but his voice could be heard taunting the neighbor in the background.
The district attorney's office reported Thursday that it has received the case. If prosecutors take action on the evidence and decide to move forward with the case, it likely will spell Bieber's most serious criminal charges to date.
The pop star has recently been charged with misdemeanor offenses in Miami Beach and Toronto. But so far California prosecutors have rejected three previous cases against Justin Bieber that accused him of reckless driving, attacking a paparazzo and even spitting on a neighbor.
However, even though the evidence has been turned over, "No decision will be made this week," Los Angeles County District Attorney spokesman Ricardo Santiago told CNN Friday.
