Justin Bieber will be prosecuted for allegedly spitting on a neighbor if LA County Sheriff’s Dept. gets its way, reports TMZ. Sheriff’s investigators will refer the case to the LA County District Attorney for review after the investigation is completed, and the Dept. will recommend that criminal battery charges be filed against the singer.
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. Law enforcement sources say it’s a cookie-cutter situation they’ve seen before, small crimes that escalate over time to serious criminal conduct.
