Los Angeles - Justin Bieber will reportedly be charged with criminal vandalism after he allegedly egged his neighbour's house in January.
The 20-year-old singer was accused of causing more than $20 000 worth of damage after he pelted eggs at a fellow resident's home in Calabasas, California, earlier this year, and it is now believed he will be charged with the crime later this week, according to TMZ.com.
It is not yet known whether the troubled star will face misdemeanour or felony charges, but a senior officer investigating the case believes Justin deserves the harshest punishment available for vandalism.
Dave Thompson said: "I led a team of people into a house where there's armed security. I wouldn't have done that if this was just a misdemeanour case."
In California, a misdemeanour vandalism charge carries up to a one-year imprisonment and a maximum $10 000 fine if convicted.
However, a felony charge carries heftier consequences and the Baby hitmaker - who was allegedly captured on camera committing the crime - could face up to three years in prison, a penalty of up to $50 000, and probation if he is found guilty.
Meanwhile, this isn't Justin's only legal battle as he will reportedly plead guilty to reckless driving later this week following his arrest in January for allegedly drag racing in Malib.
