Justin Bieber pleads no contest in egging vandalism case

LOS ANGELES (AP) — UPDATE: Justin Bieber pleaded no contest today to a misdemeanor vandalism charge in connection with the egging of a California neighbor's home.

He was sentenced to serve two years supervised probation, perform five days of community labor, pay his neighbor $80,900 in restitution and undergo 12 weekly anger management sessions, according to CNN.

The Associated Press reported Bieber was charged in connection with an egg-throwing incident in January that damaged his Calabasas neighbor's home.

The Los Angeles County district attorney's office charged Bieber with one count of misdemeanor vandalism.

Spokeswoman Jane Robison says the singer was not present for the 1:30 p.m. arraignment at Superior Court in Van Nuys.

Sheriff's investigators searched Bieber's Calabasas home on Jan. 14 searching for evidence in the case and arrested one of the singer's friends on felony drug possession charges. Surveillance footage seized from Bieber's home appears to show the pop star high-fiving friends and celebrating after throwing eggs at his neighbor's home earlier that month.

The Grammy-nominated singer faces two other cases in Florida and Toronto. A conviction on a felony charge could threaten Bieber's legal resident alien status (he's Canadian) and his ability to easily enter the USA.
