Justin Bieber given more time for community service

Justin Bieber has been given more time to complete his community service.

The 21-year-old singer was sentenced to five days of community service as well as a hefty fine and an anger management session last July in a vandalism case after he threw eggs at a neighbour's property but he has had his time frame extended to complete the tasks after he suffered an ankle injury.

The 'Boyfriend' hitmaker - who was not present for the hearing in Los Angeles on Monday (03.08.15) - was apparently limited by the injury so had not yet finished his five days of roadside cleanup, graffiti removal or other manual labour although a prosecutor said he is "close".

According to the New York Post newspaper's Page Six column, the community service order is the only part of the ruling left for him to obey, having already completed the anger management and restitution requirements.

The incident - which took place in January 2014 - led to a police officer revealing the eggs had caused "extensive damage" to the victim's home.

One of the officers who worked on the case, L. David Thompson, said at the time: "I get that the eggs don't seem that significant, but it does rise to the level of a felony. There is a victim in this case who has had extensive damage done to their home. That's a serious incident."
