You may remember that earlier this year, Justin Bieber must have missed naptime and been a bit cranky, because he threw a hissy fit and then a bunch of eggs at his neighbor’s house, apparently causing thousands of dollars worth of damage. This is the same neighbor he’d threatened to kill and whose face he spit in, so there was definitely precedent for this bullshit. Well, now he’s paying the price by… trying to work out a plea deal.
Our sources say the L.A. County D.A. has contacted Bieber’s lawyer, Howard Weitzman, and asked for a meeting to discuss restitution for the egging damage — which the neighbor puts at $20K.
We’re told the discussion between Weitzman and the prosecutor will center around paying for the damage, and pleading no contest to misdemeanor vandalism. Bieber would serve no jail time and be placed on informal probation.
The short of it all — the case would be over before it begins. Bieber will be charged, the plea bargain will be entered and it would then be case closed.
Our sources say the D.A. and the L.A. County Sheriff’s Dept. are at odds over the case. The Sheriff wants Bieber charged with a FELONY because the egging was intentional and it caused a huge amount of damage. The D.A., we’re told, thinks Bieber’s hijinks does not rise to the level of a felony … and a misdemeanor is more appropriate.
We’re told Weitzman has not met with the D.A. yet but that should happen shortly. It looks like this case could be resolved as early as next week.
Well, you know Bieber will take this because he doesn’t really have a choice and would have to pay up far more than that if this thing went to court. I mean, this is just the latest bullshit in his string of court cases, so might as well start checking them off the list…
I do have to agree with the DA here that this wasn’t particularly a felony, but I’d sure love to see JB charged with one just for being such an arrogant dickhead. Unfortunately, the law doesn’t work that way (or, in the case of most celebrities, it doesn’t work at all).
Oh, and because I care about you all so much, here’s a snippet of Justin’s new song, ‘Life Is Worth Living’ (LOL).
