The very talented and still very popular Justin Bieber has finally resolved the egg throwing incident.

A representative for Bieber said he is glad this incident is finally resolved and behind him now. Bieber accepted a plea deal from the Los Angeles County district attorney's office. Under this deal he pleaded no contest to misdemeanor vandalism in the egg throwing incident and has been ordered to pay $80,900 in restitution to the family whose home was his with eggs. The police investigators filed that the damages in the case totaled about $20,000, which could have left Bieber open for a felony charge.

From outside the court prosecutor Alan Yochelson said Bieber's behavior in the incident as "extremely immature." Bieber was not present for the court appearance where he was also ordered to serve two years' probation. Other parts of the court order included that Bieber complete a 12-week anger-management program and five days of community service. He has also been ordered by the court to stay away from his former neighbor, Jeffrey Schwartz, and his family for the next two years. Bieber's attorney, Shawn Holley, has declined to comment about this plea deal.

Back in January Bieber's previous neighbor said that he and his daughter were on the balcony of their dream home in Calabasas and videotaped the Bieber throwing eggs at their house reports Rolling Stone on July 9, 2014. At that time the sheriff department spokesman Steve Whitmore said Bieber was named as a suspect in a vandalism and assault crime report. Bieber's neighbors had previously complained that Bieber had loud parties and drove recklessly in the neighborhood. Fortunately for everyone involved nobody was hurt in this incident. It appears Bieber has it within him to make sincere amends for this incident and move ahead in his life now.
