Skip to comments.Justin Bieber mansion like a 'frat house': cop
Posted on 01/25/2014 1:17:57 PM PST by rickmichaels
A police officer who led a raid on Justin Bieber's California home has compared the star's living quarters to a student-style fraternity house.
Cops descended on Bieber's mansion in Calabasas, California earlier this month to raid the property for evidence relating to the singer's alleged egg attack on a neighbour's home.
Los Angeles County Sheriff's Lieutenant David Thompson, who helped co-ordinate the raid, has now detailed the scene the cops found when they entered the property.
Thompson tells CNN the luxury multi-million dollar mansion is more like a university fraternity house, decked out with ping pong and pool tables, video games and a basketball free-throw machine.
He says, "The house does operate much like a fraternity house and much of the same stuff that's done there is going to be done across the country. But the house next door is usually another fraternity house. It's not usually a mansion that can sustain this damage."
Thompson adds that Bieber received "quite a wake-up call" when he found swarms of police officers on his doorstep, adding, "And he needs a wake-up call... This is a person who's been wreaking havoc on the neighborhood, who's been operating, basically, with impunity... People move to that neighborhood - which is a gated community - for the peace, quiet, and tranquillity that it provides. So, Mr. Bieber's past actions of loud parties, driving too fast, large numbers of people there, egging and what not are way out of character for anyone that lives in that neighborhood."
The police raid occurred just days before Bieber was arrested in Miami Beach, Florida on suspicion of driving under the influence, resisting without violence and driving without a valid licence. The pop star was detained after cops allegedly caught him taking part in a drag race on a residential street in a luxury sports car.
Can you imagine what those CSI body fluid detectors would be off the charts in that place
Well then he needs to be put on “Double Secret Probation.”
Just like his dad probably
Hey, leave us out of this.
IOW’s, he’s got stuff in his house like any other 19 year old guy would love to have.
What a shocker
Too much $$$ = immaturity = disaster. No fan BTW.
Hmmm.... a devastingly-attractive 20 year old with endless money is living like he’s in a “frat house”?
What do you know about that!
Should have been Too much $$$ PLUS immaturity = disaster. No fan BTW.
You have got to be kidding about the attractive part. Well, okay, maybe if he was a girl he’d be cute.
I don’t care how he lives, I care how he behaves in public and if he’s breaking the law.
So the Beeb is an immature little brat. Big deal. He’s not the first juvenile with no common sense and a pile of cash to waste, and he won’t be the last.
Hopefully won’t wind up killing or maiming someone like Leif Garrett did.
Exactly. What's the big deal here. He's the same age as most college freshmen. Of course he's going to have a bunch of fun stuff in his house. I would do the same...in fact, that's what I wanted when I was 19. Bieber's got some issues, but this isn't one of them.
Duh. 19 year old millionaire.
His dad helped him block off the street so they could have the drag race. Apparently the father is about the same age of maturity as his son. Parents are divorced so I suppose dad wants to be the “cool” parent. It doesn’t sound like his mother has much influence over him right now.
The dad thinks that the media is picking on his boy. While this may not be unusual behavior for a teen out of control in cases like Beiber there is no one to put the brakes on him nor does there seem to be many consequences for his behavior and his neighbors shouldn’t have to put up with it.
People have been deported for less.
Evidence related to egg attack.
Did they seek to find chickens?
Hopefully wont wind up killing or maiming someone like Leif Garrett did
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
He is just trying to be this generations James Dean.
Not trying to judge because of his looks etc, but one would almost think his fathers(?) ‘fathering skills..well, lack of’ would probably figure ‘The Late JB is a better ‘meal ticket’ than this train wreck looking for a trestle to fall off of may just be worth more as ‘the former’ than by being an ‘icon’ washing himself out and being a ‘has been’ at a young age.
The girlyman Beiber has millions of (young and old) girls attracted to him.
Of course, there’s a societal trend in this - take a look at the typical males in a university today.
If a family member wanted to sit down with him and talk about his problems, I doubt his BB bodyguards would allow them near him. If he ever comes to his senses, that entourage will be unemployed and they know it. And so will his screwed up punk daddy.
I think your summary sounds exact.
The US justice system works differently depending on wealth status. That’s why he wasn’t deported.

|Woo hoo!! And the first 26% is in!! Thank you all very much!!|
No kidding. The kid is the most feminine-looking so-called male I think I've ever seen.
Almost but they really don't care about the artist and his wealth.
Its the Big Media Moguls who write big checks to politicians that grease those skids.
If they weren't making mega bucks on him he would be out of this country and forever banned faster than you can say Platinum CD...
Deport him, prevent reentry, and move on with our lives.
It won’t shock me a bit if later we find out that Bieber was molested.
Goes on all the time in that sick industry.
Could very well be. Maybe he’s acting out to prove his masculinity.
/Amateur shrink turned off
Would like to see what he’ll look like in his forties ....
If he makes it that far.
Are Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus the same person?
Wha...? Maybe they’re onto something, LOL!
This should serve as a warning to parents to be wary of any sudden fame that comes from their kid’s YouTube “performances”. They may hit the big time, but they may also end up in jail at 19 or worse at 27.
If this guy had some better guidance instead of just letting the Hollyweird vultures at him, he could have gracefully retired at 18 and went on to do something productive.
Letting your kid go into the entertainment business is tantamount to child abuse with all of the predators in that industry.
Leif Garret used to be a big, BIG deal. His fame rivaled that of David and Sean Cassidy. Now Leif looks like your typical non-descript Canadian man at the Mall, waiting for the wife to finish her shopping.
He was pretty good about staying out of trouble when his mother was traveling with him.
Interesting picture. I was commenting to my wife this morning that 1. Beiber does not look like a male, and 2. he looks a lot like Miley Cypres.
I’m sick of hearing about this spoiled useless teenybopper hearthtrob.
“Im sick of hearing about this spoiled useless teenybopper hearthtrob.”
A raid on the home for evidence in the egg attack? The kid’s dumb but this is dumber by far.
Club 27 candidate.
Yea, fine, unless he’s living next door to you.
