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.

I have no idea if it is true or not. I know, if someone spit in my face, there would be an ass kicking. The problem with this is, Justin knows he can basically do whatever he wants to whoever and if they attempt to even go after him, justins bodyguards will jump in.

This story is so stupid. We have all types of pedophiles, drug addicts and murders roaming the streets and this is what law enforcement wants to focus on? TMZ is always so excited for these celebrities to go to jail and always pump the TMZ commenters up knowing damn well Justin Beiber is not going to jail or prison for allegedly spitting in this guy's face just like Lindsay Lohan will never go to jail for her long list of ****ery. To wish the kid even goes to prison and the fact that you idiots actually think they are going to put JB is PRISON for this is laughable.

DON'T BELEIVE IT!!!! UNFORTUNATE THAT THIS CRAP HAS TO START ALL BECAUSE A VERY YOUNG CHILD/KID MADE IT BIG AS A CHILD/KID & OBVIOUSLY HAS MADE MORE $$ THAN THE NEIGHBOR HAS IN HIS LIFETIME......
IT'S CALLED ENVY & ALL ABOUT $$.... NOTHING WRONG WITH JUSTIN, HE'S A KID THAT HAS WORKED HARD ALL HIS YOUNG LIFE, HAS A GREAT FAMILY & A GOOD KID, WHEN YOU'VE GOT A GOOD REPUTATION, POPULAR/RELEVANT AND HAVE THE BIG $$ THEN OTHERS ENVY THE SUCCESS WHICH TURNS INTO HATE ......THERE'S ALOT OF FALSE RUMORS & SPECULATION AROUND BY MANY, INCLUDING THIS SITE IN THE PAST, WHO ARE TRYING TO TAKE HIM DOWN.... WHY?? BECAUSE HE'S A SUCCESSFUL YOUNG MAN WHO MADE IT & THE ONES SPREADING THE RUMORS, TRYING TO TAKE HIM DOWN ARE OLDER ADULTS WHO NEVER HAD THE SUCCESS AT 'JB'S' AGE...... Envy!!

It's time that this little brat learn that his actions have consequences. Charge him with assault.

He should be prosecuted for assault. Spitting carries a danger of spreading potentially dangerous diseases like TB and hepatitis

(alleged) Criminal spitting is not going to enhance anyone's street cred. It's pitiful. I think Bieb can do better.

Whether you like him or not , the Law is the Law. If he commited a crime then I pray to God he gets punished for it. He is young and foolish but most of all out of control.
