Justin Bieber egg thrower charged

Australian officials have arrested the teen who allegedly pelted singing sensation Justin Bieber with eggs during a recent concert. The unnamed 17-year-old was charged today with breaking and entering, trespassing and malicious damage, the Associated Press reports.

Video posted on YouTube shows Bieber, who was hit by a flying water bottle last year, and his backup dancers coming under egg-attack during an Australian concert April 29. Bieber — who is known to “Never Say Never” — was undeterred by the affair.

The Biebs added to his anti-bullying cred by meeting with Casey Heynes, the Internet sensation who was unknowingly filmed while he fought back against a bully. “I was like, ‘This is crazy, I can’t believe this,’ ” Bieber said of the video, which went viral. “It shows everybody else that you have to stand up for yourself.”

In an actually heart-warming moment, Bieber told Heynes, “I’m proud of you.”
