Justin Bieber Could Face Deportation
If convicted for egging in his luxurious Calabasas, Calif. neighborhood, pop star Justin Bieber could face deportation.
The Los Angeles County Sherriff’s Department raided Bieber’s home Tuesday in search of surveillance footage that would serve as evidence of his participation.
After the search, one member of Bieber’s entourage was arrested on suspicion of cocaine possession.
The arrested man was later identified as Lil Za, or Xavier Smith, with bail set at $70,000.
"California does not take vandalism lightly,” L.A. based lawyer Anahita Sedaghatfar. “If the damage is $400 or more, the person can be charged with a felony and the person can face anywhere between one to three years in jail.”
If convicted, and because Bieber is not a U.S. citizen, he could be deported to Canada in a worst-case scenario.
However, it seems the teen heart throb wouldn’t take the news too harshly.
“You guys are evil,” Bieber said in a Rolling Stones interview in 2011. “Canada’s the best country in the world. We go to the doctor and we don’t need to worry about paying him, but here, your whole life, you’re broke because of medical bills.”
