Justin Bieber accused of ‘battery’ by a neighbor who claimed Bieber is reckless

Another day, another cracktastrophe from Justin Bieber. Did you think he was done? Did you think that someone in his management team took him aside and told him he needed to behave for a few months so that people would stop thinking he was heading towards a Britney-sized meltdown? Well, someone in Justin’s team might have done that, but Justin wasn’t listening. Because in Justin’s mind, there are no others. Justin is the King of All! Nobody matters but Justin! Don’t believe me? Justin’s latest controversy seems to be some kind of physical altercation with his LA neighbor – Justin canceled a concert in Germany to fly to LA for whatever reason (??), and as soon as he got home, he and his neighbor got into it:

Justin Bieber has been accused of battery by a neighbor … and cops are at the singer’s home in Calabasas, CA investigating … TMZ has learned. Sources tell TMZ …. Justin and one of his male neighbors got into a verbal altercation just after 9 AM. We’re told the argument was intense.

We’ve confirmed Justin has returned from his overseas concerts and was back home this morning.
L.A. County Sheriff’s spokesperson Steve Whitmore tells TMZ … the accuser told deputies Justin made physical contact with him and he has filed a battery report. He also claims Justin threatened him.

Sources connected with Justin’s security tell TMZ … the neighbor came on to Justin’s property and began screaming that while Justin was away (overseas) there were people at the house throwing loud parties.

Our sources tell us Justin told the man to get off his property … but they insist Justin did not have any physical contact with him. Sources connected with JB’s security tell us the singer went inside his house and security escorted the neighbor off the property. The Sheriff’s Dept. is investigating.

Update: One of Justin’s neighbors tells TMZ … the argument between Bieber and the accuser was NOT over a party … it had to do with a Ferrari.

We’re told Bieber had the car delivered to his home last night on a flatbed truck … and this morning, he was racing the vehicle up and down the streets.

Neighborhood sources tell us … the neighbor was furious about the deafening noise AND felt Justin was endangering the community by tearing through the streets at breakneck speeds.

We’re told the neighbor went over to confront Justin about the situation … and that’s when the two sides got into a screaming match.

I have a story about neighbors! I get along really well with the older couple that lives on one side. They’re really nice, they like my dog and I always feel like we’re looking out for each other the way neighbors do. But my neighbors on the other side are… well, we don’t have the same relationship. They have a tween boy who loves to ride his ATV in my yard and his parents just got him a BB gun and he’s been shooting at things. If he shoots my dog, I’m having that little bastard arrested. I feel like Justin Bieber is the embodiment of all of the sketchy teenage-boy neighbors that you could ever have. It’s not just that his parents can’t say “no” to him, it’s that Justin has money and freedom and he really thinks he can do no wrong – which is typical among teenagers, but it’s taken to a really crazy level with Bieber. TMZ also says that many of Bieber’s neighbors have been complaining about consistently awful behavior:

Justin Bieber is a menace on wheels, driving at speeds approaching 100 mph in his quiet neighborhood and endangering children and dogs … this according to multiple residents. We broke the story … one of Justin’s neighbors filed a battery report Tuesday after a heated altercation on the singer’s property in his uber-exclusive gated community in Calabasas.

Justin’s security people say the neighbor went nuclear over parties that were thrown at the Bieb’s house while he was performing in Europe. But we’re hearing a VERY different story from neighbors.

We’ve learned the man who confronted Justin told Sheriff’s deputies … the singer was driving “unbelievably recklessly” through the neighborhood in his Ferrari. The man — whose hobby is racing cars — estimated Justin’s speed at 100 mph. He told cops he was really upset because at the time Justin was burning rubber (just before 9 AM) his wife was walking the dog.

The man also says a lot of kids were on the street because of Spring break, and Justin put the entire neighborhood at risk. Multiple neighbors back his story.

We’re told the man was NOT upset by the partying at Justin’s house. He said it was “no big deal.” But he admits he was “smoking hot” when he went to Justin’s home to tell him what an inconsiderate jerk he was by driving at breakneck speed in the hood.

The man — who is 5’7″ and 135 lbs — claims Justin made some sort of contact with him and thus the battery allegation.

[From TMZ]

Yeah. I believe the neighbor. But here’s something to think about: Justin might not have been the one driving his Ferrari! Remember how Justin’s BFF Lil Twist kept getting pulled over for speeding in Justin’s Karma Fisker? Justin regularly allows members of his entourage to play with his crazy toys. The gist of it is still the same, though – someone associated with Bieber or Bieber himself is being very reckless.

    Poor Tiny King. His face is starting to age from greed and messed up sleeping patterns.

  2. Chelsea's handler says:

    Fancy getting your ass kicked by Bieber. And worse still publicly admitting it.

  3. DanaG says:

    Justin needs to grow up or he is going to really hurt someone which is the usual way most learn their lesson. He has money and thinks he can do anything wait till his 15 minutes is up and the fame and money start to dry up if he is behaving this badly now!

    Les Enfant Terribles.(without the sibling, I guess)

  5. FLORC says:

    You need a good strong fence on one side of your property.

    This kid is spoiled rotten. Eventually someone has to say enough to him!

  6. alc says:

    Too much too soon and nobody who has the backbone to stand up to this little punk and tell him to smarten up in a hurry because he’s going to lose it all and/or physically hurt someone in the process. This looks like one more chapter in the ongoing saga of how fame and celebrity wreaks havoc on the world. And once again, everyone will say after the crash, “Oh, we didn’t know it was that serious. We didn’t know he needed help. We thought he was just being creative and enjoying everything he worked hard for. Gee, we had no idea!” The whole culture makes me sick.

  7. Sam says:

    I might be an idiot for asking this, but where are his parents? I get that maybe his dad isn’t in the picture, but his mom has been on tv and promoting her own stuff – where is she when he’s acting like this? Just because he’s 18 doesn’t mean he doesn’t need parenting anymore. Where is an adult to whip his ass?

  8. CLAIRE says:

    A gated community must have an association. The neighbors need to throw this punk out of their community, he needs to go live in the ghetto, tha´s where he belongs (just look at the way he dresses and the people he hangs out with).

  9. Kristen says:

    The worst part of this story, I think, is that he canceled a concert in Germany to go home and drive his fancy car around. All those fans depending on him, the venue, the employees, etc. So irresponsible.

    • SydneySpy says:

      Not un-smart for us! See, now those German fans are hopefully so pissed off that they’ll turn on him, not buying his music or concert tickets anymore. One sector of his fan base….gone. See where I’m going? Go ahead, you little snot, cancel some more concerts. Brick by brick…. I think what he may not have considered is that, unlike him, his fans are growing up, moving on and leaving him behind. The really young ones have already diverted their attention (and cash) to others, like One Direction, and very soon, another phenomenon will appear on the horizon, making further inroads into his fan base. Patience, my lovelies, patience.

    5′-7″ and 135 lbs…so the guy outweighed Baby Bieber by a good 50-60 lbs, right?

    Whether he was driving or not, he’s an adult (at least in age if not by appearance and behavior) and needs to be responsible for himself, his belongings, and the people he lets be around him. I have a feeling he’s going to learn that lesson the hard way, when someone gets hurt and he gets the crap sued out of him.

    • Hakura says:

      I can see his future. Pulled over & arrested for DUI, resulting in a priceless mug shot. But that won’t stop him from speeding or drinking again.

      I just pray he doesn’t end up hurting or killing anyone (person or animal), before police manage to un-wedge his now ‘big’ head from his ass, so as to be sure there’ll be plenty of room for a Judge’s boot.

  11. Little piece of sh*t. I really feel for his neighbours.

    Dear Unfortunate Neighbor:

    Next time? Get this on video. Not only will you make $$$ we can finally can this infected diaper wipe for good.”

  13. Ignoramus says:

    Either all of this recent stuff is for publicity, or he’s going through something. It just seems like suddenly there’s story after story of his bad behavior. I mean, I know he’s been douchey before, but never to this extent, so it makes me question some things.

  14. TheOneAndOnly says:

    That’s why this site and others are excellent; there’s no glorification of ahole celebs; if you read AOL,msn stories about these celebs it’s all pr bs, aol had the rihanna story of her 4 hr tardiness and never mentioned much of the students’ reaction. Today’s pop stars are just entitled, untalented, uncool aholes – stars in the 60s – 80s had far more talent and more engaging personalities, today’s pop stars don’t even have real personalities.

  15. skuddles says:

    His poor bodyguard babysitter – I’m sure he was forced to put in a long night of cradling and rocking upset little Justin to sleep after that.

  16. ol cranky says:

    I hate to burst Bieber’s little bubble but, even if he was not the one driving the car, he can still be held legally responsible (be enjoined in a lawsuit) for any accidents/injuries that occur as a result of his friend’s use of his car. A good lawyer can even make the claim that his degree of complicity and culpability is higher than it would be for the average person who loaned their car to a friend that got into an accident because Bieber was fully aware of the recklessness of his friends’ behavior when driving Bieber’s cars

  17. Gloria says:

    I’m not condoning Justin’s behavior but his neighbor sounds like a prick. I understand why he would want to talk to Justin about how it is dangerous for everyone in the neighborhood when Justin drives recklessly but if you come at someone yelling and screaming, they’re not going to hear your point. The fact that he called the police after and wasted their valuable time makes me dislike him even more. I hate when people call the police just because they lost their argument or fight that they started in the first place.

    • Hakura says:

      To approach the confrontation screaming was not the right thing, but I can understand *why* this man is so upset, considering the consequences of JB’s actions could end up hurting his loved ones, let alone the whole neighborhood.

      Re: Police -

      There was not ‘no reason’ to call the police in this situation. The reckless driving could easily hurt someone (& who knows if there’s any drug/alcoholic influence involved) making it very serious. It is not ‘wasting the police’s time’ to have them come to the neighborhood & document the complaints, which may establish a pattern of a certain behavior in the future. That way, if they’re called again for a problem, they’ll know it’s been an issue for everyone before.

      And physical altercation can get out of hand very fast. The police will keep things under control while discussing the problem with the two of them.

    • Hakura says:

      I understand what you’re saying. The whole confrontation was handled the wrong way from both sides. Neighbor was very angry/upset, & obviously approached that way, which helps nothing.

      No one should have attacked/touched anyone. It would’ve been WAY more effective to make a complaint in the first place.

      I think some of the issue is that the neighbor may feel like he won’t get anywhere with complaints, because he’s a celebrity.

  18. KellyinSeattle says:

    I bet he is pretty hot-under-the-collar; he tries to reign it in, but it shows….

    • Hakura says:

      He should really go ask Chris Brown for advice on how to control your temper. He’s been so admirably successful defeating his rage, surely it will help Justin. Rihanna will probably even help with his ‘homework’.

      Later that evening, JB will be seen pushing a store mannequin out the passengers side car door, & knocking it backwards down some stairs.

      Chris Brown. A true inspiration.

  19. Emily says:

    Bieber acts like a 13-year old who’s suddenly been given all the privileges of an 18-year old. A very, very, very rich 18-year old. I almost feel sorry for him, since he’s never been given any guidance and it’s probably impossible for him to mature at this point. But his license and all his cars need to be taken away from him.

    • Hakura says:

      Child stars always miss out on years of development w/others their ages, getting too much too soon in money & attention, but losing school & normal interactions that make such a big difference in your maturity level.

      Once he started getting famous & the money started coming in, I’m sure they gave in as so many others had before them, giving him whatever he wanted to shut him up & keep things going.

      His behavior is partially the result of all those missing experiences.
