Justin Bieber Accused of Egging Neighbor's Home

Teen Sensation to Tattooed Bad Boy

Bieber is hoping — OK, practically begging — that you’ll notice he’s graduated from YouTube phenom and sugary-sweet teen sensation to heavily tattooed bad boy and R&B groovemaster. But taking the leap to musical adulthood can be a tough gap to bridge — especially when facing a skeptical public. As producer Rodney Jerkins, who has worked with the singer for four years, says: “It’s very hard. You have to find that perfect sound that captivates your younger audience and the fans that have grown up with you. He’s finding himself musically. It’s a natural progression, and his is working smoothly.”

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Sheriff's deputies are investigating Justin Bieber for yet another neighborly dispute that could land him in court.

Los Angeles County Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore says Bieber has been named as a suspect in a misdemeanor vandalism and assault crime report for allegedly throwing eggs at a neighbor's home in their gated Calabasas neighborhood Thursday evening.

The 19-year-old pop star allegedly egged the house while his neighbor and neighbor's daughter were on the balcony. They videotaped the incident, Whitmore says.

Whitmore says Bieber won't speak to deputies. Depending on the damage estimate, a charge could rise to a felony.

In October, prosecutors declined to charge Bieber after a neighbor complained he drove recklessly through the area.

Messages left for Bieber's representative, Melissa Victor, weren't immediately returned Sunday morning.
