Bieber suspected of egging house

02:39, Jan 11 2014

Authorities are investigating Justin Bieber as a vandalism suspect after a neighbor's house in California was egged.

The neighbour called authorities about 7:40 p.m. claiming someone was pelting his Calabasas home with eggs, said Los Angeles County sheriff's Sgt. Dan Nagelmann of the Malibu/Lost Hills station.

The neighbour was home with his daughter at the time, Nagelmann said, adding that sheriff's deputies who responded to the scene found no one outside.

Bieber's publicist did not return a call for comment.

A grainy video posted on TMZ allegedly documents the incident, where a man standing in the doorway of a home exchanges expletives with a voice outside, before telling another person in the house to call the police. (Click here for video - warning explicit language)

"I got another one for you, actually," the person outside yells back in the video, before apparently hitting the house with more eggs.

Sheriff's deputies said video and photos were submitted as evidence.

Nagelmann said the neighbor told deputies he had seen Bieber throwing the eggs. The charge in the initial police report is listed as misdemeanor vandalism, according to the sheriff's department.

"He hasn't been questioned yet," Nagelmann said, referring to Bieber. "It's been passed over to the detectives and they're investigating it."

Authorities said it's still unknown what prompted the egging. Bieber has been at the center of a number of controversies that have caused friction in the wealthy, gated community where he lives.
