VAN NUYS, Calif. — Justin Bieber has pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor vandalism charge for throwing eggs at a home in his Calabasas neighborhood, and he's been sentenced to two years' probation.

Bieber was also ordered to pay $80,900 in damages, complete five days of community labor and a 12-week anger-management program, and stay away from the victim and his family for two years.

The Grammy-nominated singer was not present for the Wednesday arraignment at Superior Court in Van Nuys.

A spokeswoman for Bieber says he's glad to have the matter resolved and behind him.

Prosecutors spent months considering whether to file charges after the singer's mansion was searched following the January incident. A detective wrote that someone matching Bieber's description was seen on video high-fiving his friends at the time of the incident.
