Bieber to be charged with vandalism

Justin Bieber will be charged in connection with an egg-throwing incident

Justin Bieber will be charged in connection with an egg-throwing incident that damaged a neighbour's home.

The Los Angeles County district attorney's office said the pop star will be charged with one count of misdemeanour vandalism over the incident in January.

Spokeswoman Jane Robison said Justin, 20, would not be present for the arraignment at Superior Court in Van Nuys, Los Angeles.

Sheriff's investigators searched the star's Calabasas home on January 14 searching for evidence in the case, and arrested one of the singer's friends on felony drug possession charges.

Surveillance footage seized from the Baby singer's home appears to show the pop star high-fiving friends and celebrating after throwing eggs at his neighbour's home earlier that month.

The Grammy-nominated singer faces two other cases in Florida and Toronto.

Miami authorities have charged him with driving under the influence and driving without a valid licence, while Toronto prosecutors have accused the singer of assaulting a limo driver in December.
