Justin Bieber

Cops Recommend

PROSECUTION To D.A.

EXCLUSIVE

0507-justin-bieber-tmz-trouble
Justin Bieber's fate -- and freedom -- are now in the hands of the L.A. County District Attorney, who is now deciding whether to prosecute the singer for allegedly spitting in his neighbor's face and threatening to kill him -- and we know the Sheriff has told prosecutors -- haul him before a judge!

TMZ broke the story ... Justin was racing his Ferrari in his Calabasas gated community last March, and the breakneck speed didn't sit well with a neighbor who confronted him.  Justin allegedly ordered the neighbor off his property and then spit in his face and said, "I'm going to f**king kill you!"

The L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. investigated the case and sent the file to the D.A. Tuesday.  Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Sheriff's investigators are urging prosecutors to charge the singer with battery.  We're told cops don't think Bieber should go to jail, but he needs serious counseling because of his repeated and escalating bad behavior.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... Sheriff's investigators are worried that Bieber is either going to "get his ass kicked" or "someone's gonna get a $2 million payday" unless the singer changes his tune.

Our sources say the Sheriff's Dept. is not singling out Bieber because he's a celeb -- they'd make the same recommendation for anyone who's a first time offender with a bad temper.

The D.A. is reviewing the case.  A decision is expected soon.

After LA trial (if one), have ICE Deport him back to Canada and deny his entry into the USA.

Inspect everything loaded into Moving Vans.
Ban him from all airplane flights and ships to the USA and our territories.

END HIM.

I have a feeling that decision will be a slap on the wrist, at most. Let's not forget that Bieber is a celebrity and a celebrity usually is not treated the same way like the average Joe.

Not right. I don't know what to believe anymore but for sure I'll never stop loving him. But for advice don't do this, Justin. Don't do stupid things just cuz they make you cool or doing it to take out your anger of a girl called Selena. Not fair to us beliebers. Why?

I am a belieber. Just not the type to be protecting him but the type to say the truth. I think he should put his act together he mostly ruining his career! I still love him and always will but not loving his attitude. If this is all for something stupid of the rumors saying he's acting like this cuz of Selena? That is so stupid! I wouldn't act like that just to get someone back. What would you do?

He doesn't need counseling - he needs parenting. So many parents of superstar kids mistake turning 18 with becoming an adult, and they turn the child loose with all that money . An adult Justin clearly is not! He is a teenager living without parental influence or boundaries - what do we expect?

I'm hoping for all three resolutions... get his ass kicked, give someone a 2 million dollar pay out, and then toss his worthless whiney ass in the slammer for about 6 months.... maybe he'll grow a set by the time Bubba is done with him.

I'd glady fight Bieber for a celeb boxing match or celeb mma fight so he can get his ass kicked. I'd even meet him for street fight. The kid thinks he's tough **** because he surrounds himself with fake wanna be thugs and has bodyguards to do the lifting. Put them aside and he's nothing more than a chicken **** kid.

Biebs, we're about the same size and just couple years off on age. Let's do this, I'd gladly give you the ass kicking you deserve.
