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.

Whoever he, or one of his punk friends, hits with one of those expensive cars will not only end up owning the car, but a lot of the millions little Bieber brags about having. And spitting is dangerous considering he may have had some Lil Twist DNA in his mouth.

spitting is not only disgusting, it's lame. Trying to get the other guy to react so Bieber can go all "he attacked me". Sorry Biebs. The gentleman is mature enough to know better.

He finally gets the OG street CRED he deserves for throwing down on a spitting contest...

Next he is going to resort to name calling and maybe TP the neighbors lawn.

His behavior is getting worse, he thinks he's such a bad ass thug, take him into a prison for one day and he'll change his tune. Money don't make you bad little boy....it's about time people start standing up to him. California needs to stop letting these celebs getting away with all their crap, they are no better than anyone else. Sir Mix A Lot has a lot of fancy fast cars, but I can tell you - if he speeds in Seattle his ass will get pulled over and he WILL get a ticket!!
