The investigation into Justin Bieber’s alleged egging of his neighbor’s house is ongoing, and if this is any indication, things might get ugly.
The prosecutor in the lawsuit, in which Bieber’s Calabasas neighbor claims the egging to his home accrued more than $20,000 in damage, is pushing hard for a felony charge, TMZ reports.
Based on the deputy district attorney’s statement, the office is not so much looking to make an example out of the pop star as they are trying to make sure he does not receive special treatment due to his celebrity.
“If we don’t charge him with a felony we ruin precedent for every other felony case we want to charge,” the deputy D.A. said (via TMZ).
The incident took place in early January, but the Biebs is still facing lawsuits for his arrest on DUI, driving on an expired license and resisting arrest in Miami.
The star was also charged with assault in Toronto, and the cast was reportedly scheduled to return on May 12, according to “Billboard.”
