Justin Bieber

Egging Conviction Could Make Him

Persona Non Grata in U.S.

Justin Bieber
could be ORDERED TO LEAVE THE U.S. if he's charged and convicted of vandalism in the egging case ... TMZ has learned.

Bieber -- a Canadian citizen -- is allowed to live in the U.S. because he has what's called an O-1 Work Permit ... which Immigration issues for foreigners with "extraordinary abilities."  Lots of athletes and entertainers get O-1 status.

But here's the thing.  Under the Immigration laws, if someone is convicted of a crime of "moral turpitude" -- Immigration can deem that person "inadmissible" for work status in the U.S.

Now get this ... "moral turpitude" includes crimes involving "malicious destruction of property."

The L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. wants the D.A. to file FELONY vandalism charges because they say he caused $20K in damages.  And, the Sheriff's Dept. thinks Bieber was malicious, especially because in the middle of the attack he yelled​, "f*** you.  I got another one for you actually."

Even if the D.A. decides to file misdemeanor vandalism charges, that could doom Bieber when he reapplies for his 0-1 Permit 2 years from now.  If it's moral turpitude, it doesn't matter if it's a misdemeanor or a felony.

Truth    

The funniest thing about this story are the idiots that actually believe Bieber is going to jail or being deported. What a bunch of dupes.

For real? This is ridiculous. People just need to leave him alone. People only act out when there is some form of trauma that they are dealing with.

Im really getting sick of reading masses of people going out of their way to **** talk somekne they do not personally know-nor ever will.

Get over yourselves people, you're maliciously attacking someones life....and why? For entertainment? Go do something with a purpose....oh wait, I've just been informed, that's my job.

Breaking News...Bieber is issued a cage to be transported in across bordered countries. This is a precaution due to his labeling of Pop Star Terrorist. The animal activists clap and cheer as they haven't forgotten the easy disposal of his "beloved" pets.

He is so full of himself and rude. ABC showed a clip of him (GMA) Getting pampered back stage, when the hairdresser went to touch his head, he grabbed her arm and pushed her away. Spoiled brat.

Wasn't TMZ originally saying there was NO WAY this could happen, because it wasn't a serious enough crime? Way to 360... (again), TMZ.

JB made $58 million according to Forbes - So the State of California alone - collected $7 million in State income tax -

LA county will spend $ 50 grand investigating this egg caper that likely caused about 900 dollars in real damage

So - here's the back of the napkin results of this case

LA County - 50,000
State of Ca - 7,000,000

net loss to tax
payers of cali --------------
$ 7,050,000 per year for at least another 5 years till Beebs becomes another over the hill pop star.
