Justin Bieber receives positive feedback from probation officer

Justin Bieber's probation officer has heaped praise on the pop star for progress made in his community service sentence, relating to a 2014 vandalism charge.

The singer was placed on probation last summer (14) after allegedly hurling eggs at his former neighbor's property in a gated community in Calabasas, California in January, 2014. He was also ordered to serve five days of manual labor and enroll in an anger management course.


He completed the therapy portion of his sentence in May (15), and in August (15), the singer was granted extra time to finish his community service, after an ankle injury hindered his work.


Justin was back in Santa Monica Courthouse in California on Tuesday (13Oct15), when he met with a probation official, and sources tell TMZ.com the feedback was all positive.


He later shared video footage of himself online, painting a wall at the Youth Gang Intervention Center as part of his sentence. He simply captioned the Instagram post, "Work hard play hard".


The 21 year old's lawyer previously revealed the star is close to finishing the work.


Justin will remain on probation until 2016. He settled the $80,000 in restitution he was ordered to pay his victim, Jeff Schwartz, last year (14) and has since moved out of the area.


His legal woes aren't over, however - Schwartz is suing the musician for the emotional distress caused by his bad behavior.
