Justin Bieber, 20, will serve two years probation and pay $80,900 in damages after pleading no contest when he was charged with misdemeanor vandalism after he egged a neighbor’s house in January. Bieber was not present in the Los Angeles Superior Court Wednesday, but his lawyer, Shawn Holley, was there on his behalf for the “negotiated settlement.”
The pop star must also complete five days community service, along with a 12-week anger management program. A spokeswoman for Bieber said he is “glad to get this matter resolved and behind him.”
Prosecutors decided against a felony charge, which only requires $400 worth of damage. Deputy District Attorney Alan Yochelson called Bieber’s antics ”extremely immature and a silly act.”
There was no documentation of the act, but officers searched his Calabasas home on January 14, and a detective said someone matching the Grammy-nominee’s description was seen with friends approaching the neighbor’s home. At the time of the search, Bieber wasn’t arrested, but his manager was. Xavier Smith was arrested for felony drug possession. The singer has since moved to a condo in Beverly Hills.
