Bieber's neighbor in a posh, gated community in Calabasas, Calif., filed a police report Tuesday accusing the teen idol of battery.

The battery allegedly happened during a dispute with a neighbor who criticized Bieber for recklessly speeding in his Ferrari through the neighborhood while children were playing and people were walking their dogs, TMZ said.

The sheriff's department said it will refer the case to the district attorney for review, after which the department will recommend Bieber is charged with criminal battery, TMZ reported.

TMZ didn't name the man who filed the police report.
