Justin Bieber pleaded no contest on Wednesday to one count of misdemeanor vandalism after egging his neighbor's house earlier this year, according to a statement by the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office. The singer will have to complete five days of community service and attend an anger management program. He must also pay the plaintiff $80,900 and stay away from the man and his family for two years.

In January, Bieber's neighbor claimed that he and his daughter were on the balcony of their Calabasas home and videotaped the singer throwing eggs at their house. Sheriff department spokesman Steve Whitmore said at the time that Bieber was named as a suspect in a misdemeanor vandalism and assault crime report, and that a charge could rise to a felony depending on the damage estimate. According to the Los Angeles Times, Bieber's neighbors in the tony gated community have complained about the 19-year-old pop star before, accusing him of throwing loud parties and driving recklessly.

Earlier this year, police searched the pop star's home for surveillance footage and subsequently arrested rapper and Bieber friend Lil Za for alleged possession of cocaine. The charges were later changed to felony possession of Ecstasy and oxycodone. If convicted, the 20-year-old rapper faces up to nine years in prison.

"I get that the eggs don't seem that significant, but it does rise to the level of a felony," said Lt. David Thompson at the time of the raid. "There is a victim in this case who has had extensive damage done to their home. That's a serious incident."

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
