Justin Bieber

Smoking Gun in Egging Case

Surveillance Video

2/10/2014 9:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0209-bieber-egg-getty-tmz-01The L.A. County District Attorney has surveillance video that should make it pretty easy to prosecute Justin Bieber for allegedly egging his neighbor's house ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... The L.A. County Sheriff's Department's recommendation to file felony vandalism charges focuses on 2 pieces of critical evidence:

-- Surveillance video seized during the raid at Bieber's house.  Our sources say ... the video shows Bieber in the vicinity of the area where the egging occurred at the time of the attack.  You don't actually see him throwing eggs, but he's there.  Sources connected with Bieber told TMZ earlier the video shows nothing, but that's NOT true.  The Sheriff's Dept. has given the video to the D.A.

-- A video obtained by TMZ in which you hear what sure sounds like Justin Bieber verbally going at it with the neighbor in the middle of the egging.  At one point you ever hear Bieber scream, "F*** you!  I got another one for you actually."  The video is too dark to actually see him.

In addition there are 2 eyewitnesses ... the neighbor ... who openly has beef with Bieber -- and his 13-year-old daughter.  The girl made a 911 call which our sources say matches the time Bieber was seen on the surveillance video.

The 2 videos make it almost impossible for Bieber to deny he was throwing the eggs -- it would be shocking if the D.A. doesn't file criminal charges.

The open question -- will the D.A. file the case as a FELONY or a misdemeanor?  The neighbor has submitted repair estimates totaling around $20,000.  If a vandal destroyed an expensive car the D.A. would probably view it as a felony.  The issue is whether the D.A. will appreciate that eggs can cause that much damage on an expensive home.

The D.A's decision should come down this week.

if it was anyone else, they'd be doing jail time or they WOULD be deported. Bieber has enough money and fame to get out of everything he wants and its sick. His excuse is sick too - "im 19, im gonna make mistakes". How long is he going to play that card? for the next few years while he's risking other peoples lives? He doesnt take responsibility. Next, he'll hit someone with his car and what will his excuse be? "im 19, im going to make mistakes". His beliebers are stupid for supporting him while he risks other peoples lives and becomes an arrogant, money absorbed *******. The funny thing is, I was a belieber from 2009-2013. What a waste of my time.

Depressed. Broken. He has tried to OD. He has wanted to end it all. All he wants is to be accepted. But society doesn't care. Rumors after rumors. He has been ridiculed for years. When he finally reaches his breaking point, he's the bad guy now. The people who taunted him can't take responsibility for what they did to him, and end up denying it or blaming it on innocent others. Words are powerful they have the ability to create beautiful moments or completely destroy them. How many more school shootings and suicides need to happen before people realize hate solves nothing, if you have nothing nice to say then don't say anything at all. We're all humans with great amount of pressure on us. When someone's hurting be there. We could all use a little more compassion. More compassion, understanding, and tolerance we need to have for one another less judgment and critique.

Nothing will happen to Justin. He will somehow manage to blame it on lil twist. Twist will take the charge like the weed carrier he is and Justin will go on with life as if nothing happened.
