Justin Bieber is reportedly being investigated for battery following an altercation with his male neighbor in his Hollywood-area neighborhood. Initially it was thought the altercation occurred because of the raucous parties taking place at Bieber’s house while he was away on tour. But now it appears that it might be because of his dangerous driving habits.
TMZ has learned that the man who confronted Bieber tells Sheriff’s deputies that the singer drives “unbelievably recklessly” though the neighborhood in his Ferrari. The man, whose hobby is racing cars, estimates Bieber’s speed at approximately 100 mph. What got the neighbor so upset was that at the time Bieber was driving so far, the neighbor’s wife was walking their dog.
The man also says a lot of kids were on the street because school is out for spring break this week. Reportedly, multiple neighbors are backing up the man’s claims. The reason Bieber is being investigated for battery is because Bieber allegedly made physical contact with the man when confronted.
This wouldn’t be the first time Bieber has been speeding around in a sports car, though at least that incident was on a freeway and not in a residential neighborhood.
