Jan. 10, 2013 — -- Justin Bieber was named a suspect in a vandalism investigation, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department confirmed to ABC News.

Police were called Thursday night around 7:40 p.m. when Bieber's neighbor claimed the 19-year-old singer started throwing eggs at his house, according to a spokeswoman from the Sheriff's Department.

Bieber could face a misdemeanor charge, but the Sheriff's Department said if detectives found the damage exceeded a certain dollar amount, the charge could be bumped to a felony.

Police have booked videos and photos as evidence in the investigation, the spokeswoman said.

TMZ first broke the news, and has video it claims to be of the neighbor and Bieber shouting as the "Baby" singer threw eggs at the neighbor's house. The video is too dark to see if it's actually Bieber.

A call to Bieber's rep requesting comment was not immediately returned.

This isn't Bieber's first run-in with police in recent months.

Brazilian police wanted to speak to Bieber in November regarding graffiti the pop singer sprayed on the wall of a former hotel.
