Justin Bieber settles long-running egging lawsuit with former neighbor

Justin Bieber has agreed to settle a long-running lawsuit filed by a former neighbor whose house the pop singer egged.

A document filed Friday shows the case has been resolved in its entirety. No details were given about the terms.

Jeffrey and Suzanne Schwartz filed a lawsuit in early 2015 that alleged they suffered emotional harm because of the egging and other actions by Bieber when he lived next door.

The 24-year-old pop singer has already served probation in a criminal plea deal after the 2013 incident, and paid $80,000 in restitution for the damage he caused.

The lawsuit alleged Bieber spit in Jeffrey Schwartz’s face and terrorized the family with loud parties, drug use and aggressive driving while living in a gated community in the celebrity enclave of Calabasas. It sought more than $25,000 in damages for assault and battery, trespassing and infliction of emotional distress claims.

Bieber’s attorneys argued that the restitution he already paid and the punishment he was given were sufficient, and that he did not rightly owe more for emotional damages.

Messages left for attorneys from both sides were not immediately returned.

During an August hearing, Judge Elaine W. Mandel, who had taken over the case after three years, expressed skepticism at the plaintiffs’ claims. She grilled the Schwartz’s attorney Brian J. Kim to explain what damages Bieber caused the plaintiffs, calling them “minimal.”

She also did not appear inclined to admit much of the evidence the plaintiffs want to introduce at trial, including dozens of media stories about Bieber’s misbehavior.

Kentucky man bags ‘rare’ deer with decapitated buck head entangled in its antlers

As the saying goes, two heads are better than one — or in one hunter’s case, two sets of antlers.

A man in Ballard County, Kentucky recently bagged a “two-headed” deer, the state’s Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources announced Thursday.

WISCONSIN MAN BAGS 19-POINT BUCK AFTER HUNTING ANIMAL FOR YEARS: ‘I CANNOT BELIEVE THIS’

The hunter, who the wildlife agency identified as Bob Long, took aim at a buck with “big antlers” off in the distance. After making his shot and killing the animal, Long approached it and made an “astounding” discovery: The buck was “carrying around another set of antlers and part of a decomposing carcass,” the agency explained.

The deer, which was “truly a rare harvest,” state wildlife officials said, has garnered thousands of reactions on the social media platform, many users responding in both awe and disgust.

“Bet they were fighting and that’s the end result!! Just idea,” one person theorized.

“Wildest thing I’ve ever seen!” another wrote.

“That deer had to be stuck to the dead one a while… the stench,” a third commented.

HUNTER SETTING UP ILLEGAL DEER BLIND SHOT APPROACHING DEPUTY: TEXAS COPS

While it’s not clear how the buck in Kentucky became entangled with the carcass’ antlers, this occurrence — while unusual — is not unheard of.

In 2014, a buck in Kansas was reportedly found with its antlers entangled with those of its rival. And in January, a North Dakota man shared photos with the Duluth News Tribune of a buck in a similar situation.
