Way back in 2014, when Justin Bieber was a young, impressionable 20-year-old, he got into a bit of a dust-up with his Calabasas neighbor, Jeffrey Schwartz. After their neighborly bond deteriorated over the course of several months, the Bieb's decided to go the mature, logical route and express his disappointment with Jeffrey in a calm, clear way. Nah, we're just joshing.
According to TMZ, he egged the guy's house and screamed curse words at him, terrifying Jeffrey's 13-year-old daughter in the process. When Jeffrey came outside to tell Justin to knock it off, Justin switched from targeting the house to targeting Jeffrey, who called the sheriff. Once the eggs stopped flying and the police left, Jeffrey decided to file a suit against the Canadian singer.
Fast forward to now, summer of 2018. Justin had a deposition on June 22 about the egging incident and had been ordered by a judge to attend it. Well, Justin decided he had better things to do than hang around a stuffy office and be grilled by lawyers.
So, instead, Justin packed his bags and headed East, where his current lady love, Hailey Baldwin, was eager to greet him, according to TMZ. The two had a romantic time in New York, but back Eest...trouble was brewing. Jeffrey Schwartz was only too happy to hear that Justin skated out on the meeting and his team of attorneys was quick to file documents to issue a bench warrant for the Biebs.
Luckily for Justin, his own crack team of lawyers managed to save him from serving any jail time or even having the warrant issued in the first place. They argued that they'd requested, multiple times, for alternative days for the deposition, but Jeffrey's team turned them all down. Besides that, Justin had never officially been served the lawsuit.
Whew! Talk about your close calls! Could you even imagine Justin Bieber behind bars? Not a good look...
