Residents in Buckhead, Ga., are mobilizing against Justin Bieber after he reportedly looked at some homes in the area, local media reported.

Longtime resident Harold White has organized a protest for 6 a.m. Monday in front of the mansion the troubled pop star reportedly looked at.

"We're concerned he'll bring the wrong type of element into a quiet, residential area," Mr. White told CNN. "It is our position that a person with his means could certainly find a neighborhood more suited to his 'eclectic' lifestyle."

"People have a right to protest and he has a right to buy a home," Buckhead Neighborhood Coalition President Sam Massell told 11 Alive Atlanta.

Mr. White's wife created a Facebook group for the protest. At the time of this report, more than 300 people had announced they plan to attend.

Mr. Bieber is awaiting a March 3 trial date for charges of DUI, resisting arrest and driving with an expired license on Jan. 23.

He's also due in a Toronto court March 10 for allegedly attacking a limo driver in December.

Last month, authorities raided the singer's home after he was accused of egging a neighbor's house.
