Justin Bieber

D.A. Takes Spitting

Crimes Seriously

3/28/2013 6:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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.

Interesting how fame can drastically change someone's character. I've never been a fan of Bieber nor knew much about him, but I do recall when he first started out, he seemed like a nice down-to-earth respectable kid. In a matter of years, it seems he's completely become (or at least being portrayed as--since I can't attest to knowing whether there's any truth to any of these articles) a self-entitled, disrespectful, doucherocket. I hope it's merely TMZ spinning false stories about him and he didn't genuinely become like this.

I think being spat in the face is pretty bad, but Id be more concerned about his driving if what they are saying is true. that sounds way more dangerous to people.

Certainly the majority of residents in that area have video surveillance all over the place, so if not the disputed incident itself there must be some footage of the speeding car. I'm neither believing nor disbelieving the spitting story, but just the thought of having any body fluid from that little freak spraying around is nauseating.

The Canadian creep is way out of bounds these days.He needs to be reined in by somebody who cares about his well being. Obviously, he is surrounded by thugs who don't care.

He might have spit at the man but probably didn't connect. Plus, this doesn't sound good right after he went haywire on a papparazzi. He won't get charged with anything but if he keeps going at this rate his ass is gonna get handed to him down the one. I don't understand for the life of me when a child starts making more money than there parents will ever make, why do they just stop parenting? That lifestyle and money is too much for a child to handle. Example: Chris Brown.

I think this is some silly spat between neighbors, not a major crime for the DA to investigate. The neighbor should have just called town hall or the police about the speeding if the gate guards did nothing. The police could have stationed themselves in there and checked his speeds.


When the neighbor ran up on the lawn in a furious and threatening manner, Justin probably felt somewhat compelled to meet force with force. Maybe the neighbor is making some of it up or exagerating it. It seems like people are in for Justin lately.


Speeding can be dangerous, but so can running up and screaming at your neighbor. Maybe they both need to calm down and grow up.
