Justin Bieber could face more legal trouble after it was revealed yesterday he could face charges for vandalism, Rolling Stone reports.

The singer is accused of throwing eggs at his neighbour's house in Los Angeles last month, while the tenant and their daughter were on the balcony filming him. Investigators have now presented evidence to prosecutors regarding the allegations, which could result in Bieber facing more charges.

Last month, Bieber's house was raided by police looking for surveillance footage of the incident. He and friend Lil Za were subsequently arrested on possession of cocaine when police found what was thought to be the drug in the property. The charges were later changed to possession of ecstasy and oxycodone, following testing. Bieber could face up to nine years in prison if convicted of the charge.

One of the officers involved in the case, L. David Thompson, commented at the time of the raid: "I get that the eggs don't seem that significant, but it does rise to the level of a felony. There is a victim in this case who has had extensive damage done to their home. That's a serious incident."

In a separate incident, the 20-year-old star is set to enter a plea in a Miami courtroom on February 14 regarding his latest arrest on charges of drink driving, resisting arrest and driving on an expired driving licence. The trial is then due to begin on March 3.
