Quick: Justin Bieber is your new neighbor, what's the most important thing for you to learn? Probably how to make a citizen's arrest, which is exactly what police recently taught residents of Bieber's new Beverly Hills condo building. The Biebs had 75 people over Saturday night and 20 people on Sunday, and neighbors say the elevators and halls smelled like marijuana and, as one puts it, "there were bimbos lining up to do drugs in the lobby bathroom." Police came to the building six times over the weekend, TMZ reports. They told residents they can't arrest anyone for a misdemeanor unless they actually witness said misdemeanor, but that residents who witness wrongdoing are welcome to put Bieber under citizen's arrest, law enforcement sources say.

TMZ's previous stories make it clear just how awful it must be to live near Bieber: Four of the complaints cops received over the weekend were for loud music on the roof between 8:30pm and 3am, and each time, Bieber was not cited because he said he'd turn it down. He moved to the building—renting both the penthouse and a non-connecting unit on the floor below it—last month, apparently opting for two units so he'd have room for his entourage, sources say. Neighbors quickly complained to both police and the homeowner's association about noise and the smell of marijuana, and the HOA decided earlier this month to hire security guards to work between 6pm and 8am to keep Bieber and his entourage under control.
