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.

Hey TMZ why nothing on Benghazi and the failures, lies, cover ups of Obama and Hillary? When the Red Phone rings at 3 AM, Obama sleeps and Hillary won’t answer!

This happened on Justin's property... which makes a big difference, no? And I'm sure the neighbor was NOTHING, if not polite, right?

If a neighbor doesn't like him speeding, he should file a complaint ... not confront the man, on his own property, no less.

Were this anyone but Justin Bieber, no self respecting newspaper would carry this ... shall I call it a "story".

Hard Up for News TMZ.

Let nature take its cours. If he is going to get his ass kicked that would be fine. If it has to cost him money that would be fine. And maybe the neighbor was a moron and Beiber didn't want to hit him because of the second reason. Lets leave more things alone

Just pull out all the old Lilo stories and simply substitute the kids name for hers. There's nothing new here, just a spoiled kid.

The part about being a first time offender shouldn't even be true on this case. The Bieb continues to break laws and nobody does a thing to him. It's time someone does it and maybe he'll grow up. Maybe the judge should pull out their paddle and spank him.

I have bashed TMZ when they needed it and they need it often when it comes to Justin Bieber.....they are "down on him" (excuse me Harvey) but that is true and they have blown everything with him out of proportion BUT THIS! I am a true Bieber fan, in my late 30's and I love him and think he is more talented than anyone out there. BUT he has gotten totally out of hand, his mgmt (name Scooter Braun) is incompetent and Justin actually needs to fire him. Half of this if Justin's own fault, the other, he has NO parental guidance whatsoever, Scooter Braun ONLY thinks about making more money for himself and has realy neglected guiding Justin any more at all. Justin needs to be prosecuted and made to understand that he is no better than Joe Blow on the street regardless of his talent, looks and money. Selena Gomez had to dump his ass in order to make his understand that he couldn't **** on her. He needs to learn that he has to respect all people and the law, he needs to be humbled, needs to apologize to his neighbor, do community service, be brutally set straight on live TV in Court for all his fans to see, needs to be humbled before everyone in order to save him and his career. Also, Lil Twist & Lil Za, Judge needs to advise Justin that he needs to gain confidence in order to make friends in this business who are real friends and not just "yes" people who are losers and therefore "yes" people to you. Dump the losers. Take Selena Gomez's advice and become confident and find strength in who you are. He hathe talent ; just needs mgmt with common sense to guide him. Good lesson in life Biefs. Also, if you are busted with pot on probation or reckless driving, you will be in serious trouble. Best thing that could to you! Also, I love you and I am a devoted fan!
