Justin Bieber pleaded no contest to misdemeanor vandalism on Wednesday (July 09) for pelting a neighbor's home with eggs and was sentenced to two years probation.
The 20-year-old Bieber, who was not present in Los Angeles Superior Court for his arraignment, was also ordered to pay 80,900 dollars in restitution, serve five days community service and complete an anger management program in what the district attorney called a negotiated settlement.
"Justin is glad to get this matter resolved and behind him," Bieber's representatives said in a statement. "He will continue to move forward focusing on his career and his music."
The singer was accused of throwing eggs at a neighbor's home in an upscale Calabasas, California, neighborhood during a dispute in January.
The incident was the first in a string of arrests and legal problems for the former teen idol, who was later arrested and charged with driving under the influence in Miami Beach as well as being charged with assaulting a limo driver in Toronto.
It is not known how the sentence could influence the Miami Beach and Toronto cases.
