(Newser) – The plot thickens: Justin Bieber could end up charged with a felony over allegedly egging his neighbor's house. That's what sheriff's investigators asked prosecutors to do yesterday, CNN reports. Now prosecutors must decide whether to charge Bieber with felony vandalism (which means Bieber would have to appear in court), misdemeanor vandalism (which means his lawyer could appear for him), or nothing; a DA spokesperson says the decision won't be made this week. Investigators estimate the egg attack caused $20,000 in damage.

Bieber is also facing misdemeanor-level charges in Miami Beach (for the DUI-and-drag-racing incident) and Toronto (for allegedly assaulting a limo driver), and surveillance footage recently surfaced of Bieber getting patted down at the Miami Beach Police Department after the former incident. (You can watch it at NBC News—it's pretty amusing, despite the lack of audio.) Despite all of his legal troubles, Bieber apparently still has time to complain about his ex-girlfriend to his buddies: Sources tell TMZ Bieber and his pals are laughing at claims that Biebs is responsible for sending Selena Gomez to rehab. They say she was just as into drinking alcohol and smoking pot as they were, perhaps even more so.

I can't stand this kid. But really, $20 K in damages? The prosecutor must really be scrambling to make a case. I don't blame him though. I can't wait until he is deported and no longer in the news. I signed the petition, by the way.

If I was the Beeb.... I'd want to stay out of jail.... Even for an overnighter..... He looks way to much like a girl to want to be in jail even for a day or two. Straighten up Beeby..... You're either headed down the same pathway as Looney Lohan...... You've done alot of "acting out" lately. Some "tough guy" Judge is going to throw some serious time at you if you don't grow up.
