Justin Bieber

D.A. Takes Spitting

Crimes Seriously

EXCLUSIVE

0327_BIEBER_DA_tmz
The L.A. County D.A.'s Office will review battery allegations against Justin Bieber ... and multiple law enforcement sources tell us ... the case will be taken "seriously."

We're told when the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. concludes its investigation ... the case WILL be referred to the D.A. for review and possible prosecution.

TMZ broke the story ... one of Bieber's neighbors claims the singer was tearing through their Calabasas community Tuesday at speeds approaching 100 mph, and when the neighbor confronted Bieber he allegedly spit in the guy's face and threatened to kill him.

Several prosecutors in the D.A.'s Office tell TMZ ... spitting crimes are taken seriously for 2 reasons -- first, it's considered an extremely aggressive and "disgusting act," and second, it poses potentially serious health concerns.

We're told Bieber's neighbor wants the singer prosecuted and will fully cooperate with authorities.

What is wrong with this little self-entitled punk? You don't spit and threaten someone's life, I don't care who you think you are. He's on a downward spiral and someone close to him needs to intervene before it's too late. "you lay with dogs, you get fleas"

This neighbor is doing the world a great public service! Although it is HIGHLY unlikely Little Beaver will get anything but the usual Hollywood celebrity justice, one can only wish he will have to spend a night in the Graybar Hotel -- with some horny and hostile roommates!

Well he's tired of ppl following him & running around acting like little babies tattle-telln. Leave that little boy alone & quit trying to find a get rich quick scheme. If he didn't have money or a career ppl wouldn't even bother him. He already has a mama & daddy ppl raise ur own kids & leave him alone.

I can't believe some of you actually think people get put in prison for spitting on someone. I'm actually laughing at some of your comments. "Put him behind bars!" "Lock him up in prison" "That little self entitled thug" Half of you don't put this much effort into preserving your own community and you're on here trying to get this kid convicted over, while a vile act, something also extremely petty. You all only wish for justice against those with money. The richer they are, the more you hate them. And if they're rich and young? Goodness. The hate. Lol. Funny stuff.

It is a felony if the person has a deadly disease and purposefully spits at someone else, like HIV or Hep.
