The Los Angeles County District Attorney has spent several months trying to decide whether to charge Bieber with a misdemeanor or a felony for the crime. TMZ reports that the decision has officially been made and that charges against Bieber will be filed later today.
Bieber and the neighbor in question had several altercations during the time the Bieber lived at the home in Calabasas, but this was the most violent. Bieber also allegedly spit on the neighbor’s face in March of 2013.
Bieber will be arraigned later today, but he is not required to attend.
UPDATE: In a plea deal, Bieber pleaded no contest to the charges and was ordered to serve two years supervised probation, five days of community service, pay his neighbor $80,900, and undergo 12 weekly anger management courses.
