At least half a dozen police cruisers descended on Justin Bieber's Calabasas, Calif., mansion on Tuesday morning, serving the pop star a felony search warrant in connection with an egging incident in the neighborhood.

TMZ was first to report that Bieber was being detained at his house while police investigated. TMZ posted this video of the alleged incident, which they say was shot by a neighbor claiming Bieber trespassed on his property and pelted it with eggs.

WARNING: BAD LANGUAGE

Justin Bieber has not been "charged or exonerated" in the egging case, the Los Angeles County Sheriff said, but several pieces of evidence were removed from the home and are under review by sheriff’s investigators.
