When Justin Bieber allegedly decided to take revenge last weekend on one of his neighbors by pelting the front of his house with eggs, he set in motion a series of events that could lead either to his imprisonment or deportation back to his country, Canada.

Police are still investigating the case in which a neighbor from the exclusive gated community located in Calabasas, California, where Justin lives, accused the singer of attacking his house with eggs in the middle of the night.

Justin apparently was seeking revenge on the neighbor for having called the cops on him several times over loud parties and reckless driving around the neighborhood.

An estimated 20 eggs were used in the attack that caused over $20,000 (€14,675) in damages.

According to state laws, this is considered a felony and is punishable by jail time. For Bieber, who isn't a citizen of the United States, this also could translate into deportation back to his home country of Canada.

An LA-based lawyer, Anahita Sedaghatfar, said that, “California does not take vandalism lightly. If the damage is $400 [€293] or more, the person can be charged with a felony and the person can face anywhere between one to three years in jail, in addition to having to pay fines and penalties,” as quoted by Fox News.

Law enforcement officers have already made a house call to the singer's mansion earlier this week, armed with a warrant issued by a judge. They removed recordings from the house's security system and are currently analyzing them to see if there are any indications Justin was indeed behind the attack.

The raid also led to the arrest of one of the people in Justin's entourage, a man called Lil Za, who was charged with possession of drugs after Xanax and Ecstasy were found on his person. He was later released on bail, but also charged with vandalism, after he went ballistic and destroyed the phone in lock-up.

At the moment, police specialists are still combing through the surveillance footage from the Bieber mansion for evidence of the attack. If they find that the recordings have been tampered with in order to remove a certain part, a special team will be called in to recover the data.

It's not looking very good for Justin Bieber, the singer who rose to international fame for his angelic image. His bad boy antics are causing him a lot of problems for his career and could even land him in jail.
