Justin Bieber

Detectives Gunning For Felony Prosecution in Egging Case

1/11/2014 10:27 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0110-justin-bieber-tmzJustin Bieber will be charged with a felony -- if L.A. County Sheriff's detectives have their way.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... 2 detectives met with the owner of the house that Bieber egged Thursday night.  We're told the detectives are indignant and believe this is their best chance to nail the Biebs because they have both video of the incident and physical evidence.

And there's urgency to the investigation ... we're told the detectives told the homeowner they need repair estimates by Monday.

Our sources say detectives are confident the estimates will raise the stakes to a felony.  In California, if the damage is greater than $400 it becomes FELONY vandalism.  We're told the homeowner's damage could be in the 10s of thousands of dollars because the very expensive Venetian plaster on the outside of the house has to be redone, and very expensive doors and other items were either damaged or ruined.

As for why the Sheriff's detectives want to hold Bieber accountable ... they feel he's made a mockery of the legal system by breaking the law numerous times ... the problem has been there was never enough evidence to prosecute him.  But there is now.

The D.A. should get the case next week.

Let's see Lindsay Lohan has almost killed people done drugs, reckless driving, and stealing.... Chris Brown beat the crap out a woman, committed vandalism, and still beats people up, and lies about doing his community service....yet a couple eggs thrown by Bieber at his neighbor's house is what's going to bring him down? Uhm.....I think it's safe to say we all hope so but aint nothing gonna happen. TMZ you can only cry wolf with your headlines so many times until we don't buy it anymore.

He's become an entitled @ss and deserves whatever happens. He got too much fame too fast and too young and likely has zero parental guidance. Maybe this will be a wake-up call to treat others (especially your elders) with empathy and respect.

This is hardly about the damage/repair cost.
This is about an idiot who is long overdue on a dose of reality and how to actually act like an adult. "Beliebers" can cry and whine all they want and praise him as a saint to humanity, but at the end of the day he'll just spit on their faces. Again. I am hopeful this presses on, but seeing how he always dodges the law somehow or his goons take the fall for him, the hope dwindles.

There is simply no way to make a mockery of the L.A. legal system. It mocks itself. They'll probably reassign the case to Sean Penn's escort service.

No other place in America makes it more clear that jail is only for criminals who can't afford better accommodations.

TMZ, laughed very loudly. Where do you compose all this nonsense? What's to accuse? Fake video with a fake neighbor? Do not make people laugh.
