Earlier this week, pop star Justin Bieber was accused of egging his neighbor's house. As part of the investigation process, police searched the pop star's home yesterday for surveillance footage and in doing so, they arrested a friend of his, rapper Lil Za, for alleged possession of cocaine. The substance was later being tested to determine its actual contents.

The Associated Press reports that Bieber was at his Calabasas, Calif. home at the time of the search and was cooperative. 

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

It's been a rough stretch for Bieber, including recent police charges for spraying graffiti in Brazil, defacing a photo of former president Bill Clinton, passing out during a London performance and having his monkey quarantined in Germany.  

Last month, Bieber also claimed that he was retiring, but according to his producer, he's been recently in Toronto working on new music.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
