Justin Bieber denies spitting on neighbor and getting violent

justin-bieber-assault-gi.jpgThe reported battery investigation against Justin Bieber has grown more intense as the male neighbor who Bieber allegedly made physical contact with is claiming that the singer spit in his face and threatened to kill him.

TMZ reports that during the heated conversation between Bieber and his neighbor over Bieber's reckless driving, the neighbor, a 47-year-old businessman and father of three, stepped onto Bieber's Calabasas property and yelled, "You can't drive like this!"

The man told law enforcement that Bieber responded by saying, "Get the f*** out of here." He allegedly followed that up by spitting in the neighbor's face and saying, "I'm gonna f***ing kill you."

Bieber's neighbor has filed a battery report, and isn't going to back down.

The singer is fighting back against the claims, however. Sources tell  TMZ that while Bieber doesn't deny that he confronted his neighbor, he says things never turned physical, nor did he ever threaten to do the man harm. Additionally, Bieber's camp believes his neighbor was trespassing during the entire incident.
