Argentine court orders Justin Beiber’s arrest

April 10, 2015

An Argentine judge ordered the arrest of Justin Bieber if he sets foot in the country after the Beiber failed to face questions about an alleged assault at a Buenos Aires nightclub in 2013.


A local photographer, Diego Pesoa, accused Bieber and one of his bodyguards of lashing out at him when he tried to take a picture of the star as he left the club in the capital’s trendy Palermo Hollywood neighbourhood.

The court also ordered the detention of one of Bieber’s bodyguards.

In November, another local judge magistrate had ordered Bieber to appear for questioning within two months over the same alleged incident and requested the assistance of Argentina’s Interpol branch to help locate the 21-year-old.

Bieber’s representatives did not immediately reply to a request for comment.
