Justin Bieber's home searched over egg-tossing vandalism case

Justin Bieber's home searched over egg-tossing vandalism case

The Los Angeles Sheriff's Department says it is searching Justin Bieber's home for evidence in an egg-tossing vandalism case involving the pop star.

Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore says Bieber is at the home and is being co-operative with detectives.

The singer is under investigation for allegedly throwing eggs at a neighbour's home on Thursday evening. Whitmore says the search warrant is for a possible felony case because the damage to the neighbour's home exceeded $400. Authorities have not detailed what evidence they were searching for in Bieber's home.

The singer lives in a gated community in Calabasas, a celebrity enclave about 30 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles. In the past year, both on tour and while at home, has he has been involved in a host of "bad boy" incidents.

An email message sent to Bieber's publicist Melissa Victor was not immediately returned.

Previous investigations into Bieber's conduct by the sheriff's department against the Boyfriend singer have not resulted in charges.In October, prosecutors declined to charge Bieber after a neighbour complained he drove recklessly through the area.

Prosecutors in November 2012 also declined to charge the singer after a paparazzo accused him of punching and hitting him after leaving a Calabasas movie theatre.
