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.

Spitting is battery, it's the law. PD could check if Justin's DNA left on victim. Let's see what develops.

The police have been harassing this kid for so long. I mean every time he drives his car he gets pulled over. I guess that what happens when you have black friends. So TMZ when all you guys talk **** about someone younger than you kit really makes you look cool "NOT". Yeah he is rich and famous but he is still a little jitterbug. You hate him because people love him. But also hedoes need to calm down. And can someone tell me who the black keys are and how they won a Grammy "they suck so bad"

There needs to be a paparazzi law because its technically harrassment and stalking. Also stars need to learn that if your not in the mood for people then don't go into the public and make an idiot out of yourself

Spitting is among the lowest, trashiest, filthiest things someone can do.

Yeah we'll see. He's just another entitled bratty celebrity who will get away with it. Their excuse for letting him off will be "insufficient evidence". He's. danger to drivers, he's an obnoxious brat and he's rude.

I will give 50-1 odds the LA District Attorney's office will be too scared to file charges.

this man must be telling the truth, because he is talking about justin. had it been anyone else people would want fairness and wait until it is proven he did it. most people are just wanting him to fail so badly and write horrible things about him. and anyone who defends him is called very ugly names. its really twisted.

The little girl's balls aren't big enough to safely be doing the things he is doing. Someone is going to get hurt and he won't be able to buy his way out of it. That's a pretty predictable future for this spineless POS!
