Justin Bieber has pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor vandalism charge for throwing eggs at a home in his Calabasas, Los Angeles, neighbourhood, and he’s been sentenced to two years’ probation.

Bieber was also ordered to pay $80 900 (R860 000) in damages, complete five days of community service, undergo a 12-week anger-management programme, and stay away from the victim and his family for two years.

The Grammy-nominated singer was not present for the arraignment at Superior Court in Van Nuys yesterday.

A spokesperson for Bieber says he’s glad to have the matter resolved and behind him.

Prosecutors spent months considering whether to file charges after the singer’s mansion was searched after the incident in January.

A detective wrote that someone matching Bieber’s description was seen on video high-fiving his friends at the time of the incident.
