Justin Bieber may want to take a cue from Chris Brown and think about anger management rehab.
That's because the 19-year-old pop singer is suspected of having launched an egg-throwing assault upon his neighbor's home in the Calabasas neighborhood of Los Angeles on Thursday night.
Yes, apparently egging is something that teenagers still do.
The L.A. County Sheriff's Department tells "The Insider" that they responded to a distress call at around 7:40 p.m. PT Thursday night, and that Bieber is in fact a suspect in the vandalism investigation filed by his neighbor.
The neighbor claims the superstar hurled a total of about two dozen eggs at his house. The incident report notes that although no one was hurt, authorities are treating it as a misdemeanor vandalism incident. If the damage to the neighbor's home is deemed more extensive, the crime could be elevated to a felony.
"The Insider" has reached out to a rep for Bieber but hasn't received any comment as of yet.
TMZ, which first reported news about the attack, posted video of what they claim is allegedly Bieber and the neighbor yelling back and forth at each other. In the clip, Justin supposedly yells at the neighbor, "F--- you! I got another one for you actually," while the neighbor's teenage daughter rushes to call authorities.
The site also posted photos that show the results of the alleged attack.
Bieber has had quite the event-filled past year with his neighbors in Calabasas. We first heard about the problems he was having back in March 2013, when a verbal altercation took place between the "Boyfriend" singer and a neighbor. (It’s unclear if this is the same resident involved in this most recent egg-throwing incident) The neighbor later accused Bieber of spitting on him. Then last May, several of his neighbors (most famously, former NFL player Keyshawn Johnson) called authorities complaining about his and his friends’ reckless driving habits. In June, the neighborhood's Home Owner's Association reportedly sent a letter around encouraging folks to call the police if they witnessed questionable behavior. In October, the Biebs caught a lucky break when the spitting and speeding charges were dropped due to a lack of evidence.
