Los Angeles • Justin Bieber will be charged in Los Angeles in an egg-throwing incident in January that damaged a neighbor's home, prosecutors said.
The Los Angeles County district attorney's office said Bieber will be charged Wednesday with one count of misdemeanor vandalism.
The Grammy-nominated singer will not be present for the 1:30 p.m. arraignment at Superior Court in Van Nuys, DA spokeswoman Jane Robison said.
It's not immediately clear what the potential penalty is.
Prosecutors spent months considering whether to file charges. The singer's Calabasas mansion was searched on Jan. 14 and detectives later filed a search warrant to obtain images from Bieber's Instagram account to match them up to surveillance footage taken from his home. A detective wrote that a person matching Bieber's description was seen high-fiving his friends after running toward a neighbor's home, but footage of the egg attack was not captured.
