Singer Justin Bieber has pleaded no contest to misdemeanor vandalism for throwing eggs at a neighbor's home in January.

He's been sentenced to two years probation and ordered to perform five days community labor and pay $80,900 in restitution.

He also must complete an anger-management program. Bieber was not in Van Nuys Superior Court for the hearing. An attorney entered the plea on his behalf.

Sheriff's investigators searched Bieber's Calabasas home on Jan. 14 searching for evidence in the case and arrested one of the singer's friends on felony drug possession charges. Surveillance footage seized from Bieber's home appears to show the pop star high-fiving friends and celebrating after throwing eggs at his neighbor's home earlier that month.

Bieber faces two other cases in Florida and Toronto. A Miami court has set a trial date this month for his DUI case, which also includes charges that he resisted arrest without violence and was driving with an expired license.

A preliminary toxicology report showed that the singer tested positive for marijuana and the anti-anxiety drug Xanax after his arrest, but no other illicit drugs were found in his system.

The singer turned himself in to Toronto authorities on Jan. 29 on a charge that he assaulted a limo driver in late December. Weitzman has said that Bieber is innocent in that case, which he described as being the equivalent of a misdemeanor case in the United States.

Bieber gained stardom with his debut album at age 15 and his career has been guided by a pair of music industry heavyweights, singer Usher and manager Scooter Braun. He has been nominated for two Grammy Awards for his 2010 full-length album debut "My World 2.0," but his popularity has waned.
