Justin Bieber returned last night for a brief rest from the international leg of his Believe tour. But it was anything but a happy homecoming.

Sources confirm to TMZ that the singer has been accused of battery by his neighbor in Calabasas, California.

Authorities are investigating the incident, but Bieber was allegedly involved in an “intense argument” with this unidentified man around 9 a.m. today.

The altercation stemmed from the accuser walking on to Justin’s property and complaining that guests there had been throwing loud parties while the artist was abroad.

L.A. County Sheriff’s spokesperson Steve Whitmore says the neighbor told deputies that Bieber got physical with him, a charge other sources deny.

Those close to Bieber confirm he did get into it with the man, but only verbally, and that Justin eventually retreated to his house so security could lead the man away.

This allegation follows another strange incident in the Recently Turbulent and Confusing Times of Justin Bieber: he went through airport security in Poland yesterday without a shirt on.

And last month, of course, Bieber flipped the eff out on a cameraman in London.

Expect a Tweet or two from Bieber later today regarding the situation and expect THG to provide updates as news breaks.

UPDATE: Sources now say Bieber’s reckless driving was to blame for this argument.
