Police advise Justin Bieber's neighbors
Police have advised Justin Bieber's neighbors to place him under citizen's arrest if he disturbs them again.
Law enforcement officials were called out to the 'Baby' singer's Beverly Hills home six times over the weekend - four times for excessive noise in the middle of the night - and as well as speaking to the 20-year-old star and his management team about the situation, they have now also spoken to fellow residents.
According to TMZ, they advised neighbors that they can't make an arrest for misdemeanor offences if they don't see them happen, so suggested they place the 'Believe' hitmaker under citizen's arrest until they arrive instead.
Meanwhile, residents in the building told the website the singer's partying - which saw him joined by 75 guests on Saturday (07.19.14) and 20 the following evening - left communal areas including hallways and elevators "reeking" of marijuana, while his friends were said to be obvious about their drug use.
One source said: "There were bimbos lining up to do drugs in the lobby bathroom."
Despite the multiple call-outs at the weekend, Justin was not cited as he agreed to turn the music down.
However, the 'Beauty and a Beat' singer is currently on a two-year probation for pelting his neighbor's house in Calabasas with eggs earlier this year, and any further incidents could have serious consequences.
An insider explained: "If the Beverly Hills Police Department cites Justin, they will forward the matter to the Los Angeles County Probation Department, which could trigger a probation violation and then he's in jail territory."
Meanwhile, this isn't the first time Justin - who moved out of his Calabasas home in March - has run into problems with his new neighbors as police were called to his home twice last month after fellow residents complained of excessive noise and marijuana use.
