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.

Not like anything will happen. The legal system in this country is laughable at best. Look at Lohan. Nothing happens to her ever.

It's a neighbor, not some random stranger. You have to have some civility when dealing with people that live next to you. I drop kick strangers that come within inches of my face.

This is obviously persecution by a hater. There is no independent proof of Battery. If Lindsay Lohan were to spit on the prosecutors, they probably would have given her a medal. Justin is treated as if he is charged with murder!

no thanks, we don't want him back...
he wouldn't get away with what he is doing if he was here anyhow. he's been caught on video just recently threatening to kill someone else, he's a mental midget. he's been living in cali for years, which seems to be part of his downhill slide.
while i wouldn't have wanted that murder plot on anyone, i cannot stand him or his "music". imagine sounding like a girl when singing for the rest of your life...

This is the city, Los Angeles California. It's a nice city, but when young, undisiplined, spoiled, brats want to spew their bacteria infested mucus on someone's face that's when I go to work. I carry a badge.

That radio show host accused him of spitting in her water bottle at the gym a few months back. If true, this seems like something he'd do.
