Justin Bieber Egg Throwing Case Sent To The DA’s Office

The Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department is washing their hands of Justin Bieber’s egg throwing case.

On Thursday afternoon, the Sheriff’s Department turned the case over to the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office in hopes that it presses vandalism charges against the troubled star.

“We did a search warrant and put a lot of work into it. Of course it’s up to them … I want a felony filing … The kid needs to realize he can’t do this,” Sheriff’s Lt. Dave Thompson told E! News. “Certainly we don’t want [the D.A.] to reject it. We believe with the dollar amount and the evidence it deserves a felony filing.”

On January 14, deputies raided Bieber’s Calabasas home to find evidence linking the singer to an egg throwing incident that allegedly took place on January 9. The incident involved a 47-year-old male, a neighbor of the pop star, who complained that the 19-year-old was throwing eggs at his home. Deputies say that the strike allegedly caused an estimated $20,000 in damages.

Exclusive: Sorry, Folks, Diddy Did NOT Offer H&M Model A Contract

Last week rumors started circulating that Diddy had offered Liam Mango, the young model featured in the H&M ad a Sean John modeling contract. Unfortunately those reports, as sweet as they sound, aren’t true.

Diddy spoke to reporters backstage before a tapping of his new show The Four  and clarified what really happened.

“I didn’t actually offer a modeling contract to him I told my people to reach out to him so we could use him in the next shoot that we do,” he explained.  “But with that being said, I think that what we’re seeing is just a general insensitivity to how we feel you know. I think that H&M is going to feel the results of that.”

H&M has issued an official apology for featuring Mango on their website in a “Coolest Monkey In The Jungle” hoodie, saying in a statement : “We sincerely apologize for offending people with this image of a printed hooded top. The image has been removed from all online channels and the product will not be for sale in the United States. We believe in diversity and inclusion in all that we do and will be reviewing all our internal policies accordingly to avoid any future issues.”

After photos of the young boy hit the web, folks started speaking out against the retailer calling them racist and insensitive. But one person not feeling that way was Mango’s mother. She posted her thoughts Facebook questioning what all the fuss is about. “I really don’t understand but not coz am choosing not to but because it’s not my way of thinking, sorry.”

She and the boys father Terry Odhiambo have since had a change of heart appearing on ITV on Monday, saying they don’t think that there’s ever an “overreaction when it comes to racism”.

They also said they’ve had to move from their home in Sweden, and haven’t been able to live a normal life since the controversy started.
