LOS ANGELES (CNN) — Justin Bieber’s neighbor accused the singer of “battery and threats” after a confrontation outside his Calabasas, California, home on Tuesday morning, a law enforcement spokesman said.

Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies were called to Bieber’s gated neighborhood at 9 a.m. by the neighbor, who is not being named, according to sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore.

Bieber, 19, moved into a $6.5 million mansion in The Oaks of Calabasas — an exclusive community that is also home to Michael Jackson’s mother and Jackson’s three children — a year ago.

Investigators are sorting through witness statements to decide whether charges should be filed against Bieber, Whitmore said.

Bieber had just returned to his California home Tuesday morning after performing in Europe.

The singer’s representatives did not immediately respond to calls from CNN seeking comment.
