Australia Teen Charged over Eggs Thrown at Bieber

Sydney (AP) - Australian officials have charged a teenager with breaking into a Justin Bieber concert and throwing eggs at the Canadian pop star.

The 17-year-old appeared in a Sydney Children's Court on Thursday and was charged with breaking and entering, trespassing and malicious damage. He cannot be named because he is a minor.

Video footage of the concert last Friday at Sydney's Acer Arena showed several raw eggs smash on the stage, narrowly missing Bieber and his backup singers. They continued to sing and dance.

Police say the boy broke into the arena through the roof. He was released on bail and is to enter a plea next month.
