Although the investigation into Justin Bieber’s recent altercation with his neighbor is still ongoing, law enforcement officials in Los Angeles shared that the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department wants to see the Biebs prosecuted for spitting in his neighbor’s face, TMZ reported yesterday.
Reportedly, investigators are considering referring their case against the 19-year-old pop star “to the L.A. County District Attorney for review after the investigation is completed, and the Dept. will recommend that criminal battery charges be filed against the singer.”
There hasn’t been any such official recommendation from the sheriff’s department to the district attorney’s office yet however.
TMZ went on to say:
We’re told members of the Dept. believe it’s relevant Bieber has shown a pattern of disregard for the law, including speeding tickets, fights, threats, reckless driving, drugs and more.
Bieber’s most recent legal woes occurred on March 26 when police were called to his suburban Los Angeles estate a little after 9 a.m. when the neighbor came onto Bieber’s property and began screaming at him.
The neighbor, 47-year-old Jeff Schwartz, was upset with Bieber for speeding his new Ferrari and driving recklessly through the neighborhood. Swartz is the father of a young child.
Bieber’s alleged reckless driving occurred in The Oaks, a quiet, gated community in Calabasas, Calif. where the Biebs recently moved into a $6.5 million home.
Although earlier reports stated that the altercation was totally verbal, “Schwartz, his wife and a third witness claim Bieber spit on his antagonist during the disagreement and had to be restrained by his bodyguard from going after him,” according to The Hollywood Gossip.
