Justin Bieber's neighbor in Southern California has accused the pop singer of battery and making threats during an argument.

Los Angeles County Sherriff's Department spokesman Steve Whitmore says authorities were called to the scene in Calabasas just after 9 a.m. Tuesday.

Whitmore says it's unclear who called authorities, and whether there have been previous complaints about problems between the 19-year-old crooner and neighbors.

Whitmore says there has been no arrest and the situation remains under investigation.

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

The investigation was first reported by TMZ, which reported that the accuser was upset after Bieber got a Ferrari delivered to his home and was racing through the streets with his new car. Sources told TMZ that the alleged altercation happened after the neighbor approached Bieber about the situation.

The charges come on the same day that the superstar was seen strutting his stuff shirtlessin a Poland airport.
