LOS ANGELES – An ankle injury has tripped up Justin Bieber’s attempts to complete the terms of his sentence in a vandalism case filed after he threw eggs at his neighbor’s house last year.

Probation officials wrote in a report filed Tuesday that Bieber cited a severe ankle sprain suffered in a soccer game as the reason he couldn’t complete five days of community labor as planned in early January. Bieber provided a chiropractor’s report stating he was ordered to stay off his feet for a week in early January.

Bieber’s attorney Shawn Holley said the singer’s next court date is May 11.
