Justin Bieber's legal troubles continue, as sheriff's investigators in Los Angeles have presented evidence to prosecutors over accusations that the singer egged his neighbor's house last month. According to Associated Press, the district attorney's office is now considering whether to move forward on felony vandalism charges against Bieber. It's unknown at the moment as to what the specific evidence is.
Last month, 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."
Bieber is set to be arraigned on February 14th in a Miami courtroom on charges of drunk driving, resisting arrest and driving with an expired license. It's unknown whether the singer will appear in court or if his attorney will enter a plea on behalf of the singer. The trial is set to begin on March 3rd.
There was some good news for the singer this week, as Bieber's former bodyguard dropped a lawsuit over an alleged assault and battery after Bieber's 2012 concert. Bieber's lawyer refused to give details on the dismissal but said each side of the suit had reached "mutual satisfaction."
