According to authorities, Justin Bieber will likely face criminal battery charges for his argument with an angry neighbor earlier this week.
As previously reported, the singer was confronted by Jeff Schwartz - a 47-year old father of three - and berated for driving recklessly around the neighborhood.
Both Schwartz, his wife and a third witness claim Bieber spit on his antagonist during the disagreement and had to be restrained by his bodyguard from going after him.
Los Angeles County Investigators have looked into the incident and will refer the case to the District Attorney, law enforcement insiders confirm to TMZ.
The main reason for prosecution?
Officials believe Bieber's history of disregard for the law - in terms of his driving record and pot smoking - show a pattern of troublesome behavior. They have seen many similar cases in the past of such small law-breaking leading into far more serious conduct down the line.
Regardless of there this case goes legally, those within the Sheriff's Department believe Justin need professional help.
