A neighbor accused Justin Bieber on Tuesday of battery and making threats during an argument in suburban Los Angeles, authorities said.

A representative of Bieber did not immediately return a request for comment.

The “Baby” singer is in the midst of a European tour and performed a show in Poland on Monday night.

Authorities were called to the Calabasas, Calif., scene just after 9 a.m., said Steve Whitmore, spokesman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

“There have been allegations made against Mr. Bieber of battery and making threats,” Whitmore said.
