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.

He's been progressively devolving into a thug. He should be treated like one since he thinks he can go around threatening people.

This guy is such a brat that he doesn't respect anyone. He is thinking he is on top of the world right now.


In my own opinion, the Immigration should deport him back to Canada and confiscate all of his properties here in the USA and auction them.


He is never gonna change.

We know he's got a history of yelling that he'd kill people (that photog in the UK) but has he got any past with spitting on people or is this something new?

The better Justin should take him under his wing and teach him how to be mature and humble. Timberlake never got in any trouble or acted like a spoiled entitled brat.
