Justin Bieber home raided by police amid egging probe (Update)
Police have served Justin Bieber with a search warrant as they continue to investigate a case in which he allegedly threw eggs at his neighbor and the man's 13-year-old daughter.
UPDATE: The 19-year-old pop singer was home at the time when authorities arrived on Tuesday, Jan. 14, and he and others in his house cooperated with officers, a police official said. A man was seen being led out of the house in handcuffs. Police said they arrested a person on suspicion of felony drug possession - check out more details.
The alleged egging incident took place on Thursday. Bieber, who is being investigated on suspicion of felony vandalism, has not commented.
"At about 8 a.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 14, 2014, detectives from Lost Hills / Malibu Sheriff's Station of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department began service of a search warrant at the Calabasas home of suspect Justin Bieber," police said in a statement obtained by OTRC.com. "The purpose of the search warrant is to seek video surveillance or other possible evidence in the vandalism that occurred on January 9, 2014."
No criminal charges have been filed as of yet. The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department statement said that "the vandalism damage is estimated by the homeowner to be approximately $20,000" and that the investigation is ongoing. Charges involving property damage that totals more than $400 are classified as felonies. It is unclear if a independent property assessment of Bieber's neighbor's home has been made.
"He attacked me and my 13-year-old daughter and my home last night. Ya, unprovoked and blatant," the neighbor, who did not reveal his name, said last week. "He doesn't stop. He is an out of control punk."
Bieber was last year accused of battery in another case involving a neighbor.
