Something smells rotten. As of late morning west coast time on Tuesday, Jan. 14, Justin Bieber's home was being raided by the police. The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department has moved in after Bieber was allegedly involved in an egg-throwing incident at a neighbor's home earlier this week.
"I can confirm we have served a search warrant at Justin Bieber's residence as part of a felony vandalism investigation," Steve Whitmore, a spokesman for the LAPD has told the New York Daily News. "He is there, and we are right now in the process of serving the warrant. We're looking for anything we might need to move this investigation forward."
According to TMZ, 11 patrol cars were parked outside the 19-year-old star's Calabasas, Calif., home for the felony search warrant. Police officers are searching for any evidence, including a possible video from the incident, or even broken eggs. His friend, Lil Za, was reportedly arrested on a felony drug possession charge for cocaine.
On Jan. 10, TMZ posted footage of the incident, which included the house owner screaming at the attackers. One particular egg thrower, allegedly Bieber, is heard shouting back: "F--k you, I got another one for you actually!" In the clip, the male owner asks his 13-year-old daughter to call the police. She frighteningly says "oh my god," and calls the police to report about the "assault." The damage reportedly cost around $20,000.
Bieber's rep has no comment on the situation.
