Police raid Justin Bieber’s home after alleged assault on neighbor’s home

Teenage pop star Justin Bieber’s California home was recently raided by police after he was accused of defacing his neighbor’s house by throwing eggs, CBS News reported on Wednesday, January 15.

At least 12 deputies with Los Angeles County investigated the 19-year-old’s mansion on January 14 to gather evidence for the allegations that he committed vandalism by throwing eggs at his neighbor’s home during an argument. The property damage was estimated to cost at least $20,000, a felony amount of damage. Police detained the pop star inside his home where he declined to make a statement regarding the incident.

Charges Dropped against Former State Supported Employee

On Tuesday March 5th, charges were dropped against  a former Corpus Christi State Supported Living Center employee regarding an incident that occurred after the “Fight Club” videos.

30-year-old Tyesha Floyd was allegedly responsible for making two residents to fight each other and was indicted for allowing disabled persons to be injured.

However, based on new evidence given by the Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC), Floyd’s charges were dropped. District Attorney Mark Skurka said the HHSC report gave doubts regarding the credibility of some of the witnesses that they would have used in the case, in addition to potentially discrediting some of the actions that were reported during the incident.

Texas Lawmakers Urged to Consider Permanent Sobriety Checkpoints

A recent legislative session in the Texas capitol saw San Antonio police Deputy Chief Anthony Trevino urging legislators to consider adopting permanent DWI sobriety checkpoints in various locations throughout the state. Trevino argued that, by targeting locations known to be “hot-spots” for drunk driving, law enforcement officials might be able to help crack down on the number of drivers who engage in this type of behavior and help reduce auto fatalities in the state.

While no legislation has currently been proposed to establish a legal basis for this type of extension of police authority, the fact that the proposal is being heard at all by state legislators should serve as a reminder of the importance of having an attorney in this type of circumstance. Law enforcement agencies throughout the state will go to whatever means may be necessary to secure a DWI conviction. An experienced Lewisville criminal lawyer can help to protect the rights of those accused of this crime.
