Justin Bieber to be charged for felony?
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.
Police officers want Justin Bieber to face felony charges for throwing eggs at his neighbour's house.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department passed the case on to the L.A. County District Attorney (D.A.) on Thursday (06.02.14) and strongly recommended that the 'Baby' hitmaker be punished to the fullest extent of the law for allegedly causing $20,000 in damage to his neighbour's house in Calabasas, California last month.
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 but could become a felony due to the extent of the damage, in approximately one week.
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.
