Justin Bieber: Did Obnoxious Act Justify Search?By: Toni Matthews-El - January 15, 2014
One minute you’re a pretty boy singer with saggy pants just tossing eggs at your neighbor’s house. The next thing you know, the police are searching your home for proof….of an “egging”.
In the 47 second video clip, the homeowner can be heard that he can “f**king see” Justin Bieber on his property. A person who admittedly sounds a lot like Bieber is responding that he has “another one”, a possible admission to trespassing and vandalism. The video isn’t the clearest and TMZ’s trademark doesn’t help, but the voice is definitely recognizable.
After the incident occurred, Bieber’s neighbors took pictures of the damage caused by the vandalism and claimed that his little stunt resulted in $20,000 worth of damage. A drop in the bucket of Bieber’s fortune, he had offered to pay for the damages.
But the story doesn’t end there.
The act of vandalism led to Los Angeles County law enforcement descending on the home with a search warrant. Eleven cop cars were at the scene of the search, where cops were hoping to find definite proof of Bieber’s actions.
During the search, an associate of the singer was arrested on drug-related charges. There’s no reports yet of drugs being linked to Bieber, but police say that though he was not detained for drugs, he’s not yet been cleared.
Not everyone approves of the show of police force. California-based criminal defense attorney David Wohl told FOX411 his opinion of the whole matter.
“Cops are going to extraordinarily lengths to try to prove what is a relatively minor crime. Rest assured if the average person has their house egged, cops will not respond with the felony warrants and a battering ram. This is a frankly embarrassing response by cops who appear to be hell bent on finally making something stick to this Teflon pop star.”
Was Justin Bieber’s behavior enough to justify such a raid? Opinion will likely be divided as Bieber’s behavior continues to baffle and annoy about as much as his singing.
