Justin Bieber has been questioned by police over the egging of his neighbour’s house in Calabasas, California last week.
Bieber spoke to police earlier today (January 14) in relation to the incident, which saw him accused of throwing eggs at his neighbour’s house while his neighbour and neighbour’s daughter were on the balcony filming him. Billboard reports that a dozen vehicles arrived on Bieber’s property at 8am (PT) today with a search warrant, looking for evidence that Bieber was involved in the incident. Det. Dave Thompson commented: “We collected evidence related to that crime. Mr. Bieber was present and cooperative. He was not arrested.”
However, a friend of the pop singer was allegedly found with an unspecified amount of cocaine and arrested for felony drug possession. The alleged egg attack caused an estimated $20,000 worth of damage to Bieber’s neighbour’s property.
At the end of last year (December 2013), Bieber’s representatives were forced to deny reports that the singer was retiring after he tweeted to his fans: “My beloved beliebers I’m officially retiring.”
“Regarding his recent tweeting about his ‘retirement’ Justin felt that this was the best way to respond to the latest in a long line of inaccurate or wildly exaggerated media reports about him,” his representative Allison Kaye said. “He chose to channel his frustration into playing along with this baseless rumor and even used ‘beloved’ to tip off his core fans that it wasn’t real.”
