Pop singer Justin Bieber could face criminal charges after allegedly spitting on and threatening his neighbour in an argument over driving.
The Canadian star could be charged with battery after the incident at his £4.27 million home in Calabases, California, an LA Sheriff’s department source told TMZ.com.
Car sales tycoon Jeff Schwartz alleges that on 26 March he confronted Bieber about his racing at speeds of up to 100 miles per hour in his sports car on the streets of their exclusive estate, and the Grammy-nominated singer spat in his face and threatened to kill him.
Mr Schwartz’s wife Suzie told TMZ: “He deserves to be charged over this. Justin Bieber is a punk. Spitting on someone is unacceptable. He can’t do this to people.”
Bieber faces prosecution in Germany after trying to sneak his pet monkey Mally into the country.
Earlier this month, British fans were angry when he arrived almost two hours late for one of his gigs at London’s O2 Arena, left the stage early at another gig after complaining he could not breathe properly and then threatened a photographer outside his hotel.
