Bieber pleads no contest in egg throwing

Justin Bieber must pay $80,900 in damages and serve two years on probation after pleading no contest Wednesday to a misdemeanor vandalism charge for throwing eggs at a neighbor’s home in Calabasas, California, in January.

Bieber also was ordered to complete five days of community labor and a 12-week anger-management program and stay away from the victim and his family for two years.

The 20-year-old Grammy-nominated singer was not present for the arraignment. A hearing to check on Bieber’s progress toward completing his sentence was scheduled for Aug. 12.

Prosecutors spent months deciding whether to file charges after the January incident. They considered felony charges because the damage was said to be more than $400, the threshold for a felony.

Deputy District Attorney Alan Yochelson said he was satisfied with the misdemeanor charge and called egg throwing an “extremely immature and a silly act.”

The singer’s Calabasas mansion was searched Jan. 14 and detectives later filed a search warrant to obtain images from Bieber’s Instagram account to match them to surveillance footage taken from his home. A detective wrote that a person matching Bieber’s description was seen high-fiving his friends after running toward a neighbor’s home, but footage of the egg attack was not captured.
