It was a totally unintentional misunderstanding. Celebrity Gossip websites are going to have a field day with this one. It was a horrible mistake and Spears reportedly feels awful for the incident. Just a bad case of he thought she thought. I mean…she’s worth $50 million and I seriously doubt she would intentionally skip. This needs to be chalked up as “Whoops…I won’t do it again!”

The security guy got into it with one of the photographers, grabbed his camera and handed it to the driver. It was then that the security guy allegedly jumped in the car and told the driver to take off.
Cops found the Escalade at the Austin estate. They searched it for the camera, which they located inside.

There’s new turn of events in the Justin Bieber non-poached egg throwing incident and it appears that the latest findings may just open up a “whole new can of worms” for the trouble singer and his entourage.
According to sources, while police were executing a felony search warrant in connection with Bieber’s egg attack on his neighbor. During the search inside Bieber’ s Calabasas home they found and confiscated a powdered substance and some Xanax which they believe belonged to his friend Lil‘ Za who they charged for possession of felony.
Officials said that Bieber was “not connected” to the drugs that were found.
They are reportedly testing the substance which they think is probably Molly … a form of Ecstasy or cocaine.
Note: MDMA is an empathogenic drug of the phenethylamine and amphetamine classes of drugs. MDMA has become widely known as “ecstasy”, usually referring to its street form, although this term may also include the presence of possible adulterants.
If they determine that the illegal substance is Molly (MDMA),the penalty for ecstasy isn’t as harsh as cocaine possession. Lil Za, the younger brother of Lil Twist could face 3 years in prison. Possession of MDMA is much less, about 1 year.
The egging incident…On Thursday, January 09, Eleven Los Angeles County Sheriff’s patrol cars arrived on the scene early Tuesday with a felony search warrant in connection with the incident from Thursday in which the Biebs’ next door neighbor claimed that Justin pelted his house with eggs.

The neighbor claimed that Bieber hit his house with no less than 20 eggs. Though the initial police report described the incident as a misdemeanor, the neighbor has claimed damage in excess of $20,000, which could bump the incident up to a felony. Bieber’s spokespeople have not commented on the latest flap with his neighbor.
