In 2013, Justin Bieber earned an arrest warrant related to a 2013 assault claim in Argentina. As soon as he stepped down in Rome, he was halted by authorities as Argentina requested his detainment.
Apparently, Bieber had assaulted an Argentinian photographer during his stay.
Meanwhile, despite the call for arrest, Bieber was just under interrogation at his five-star hotel. He hasn’t been arrested… yet.
American news magazine TMZ confirmed that Justin Bieber is in an Interpol list for the outstanding arrest warrant in Argentina. Bieber ignored a November court summons, which coincides with a November 2013 date on his recent tour in Buenos Aires.
An Argentinian Photographer, Diego Pesoa, accuses the pop star of having his bodyguard seize the photographer’s camera forcefully, resulting in possible personal injuries.
In Argentina, personal injury could range from one month to six month imprisonment.
Despite the news, Bieber said all information about his Argentinian assault are rumours and nothing more.
Justin Bieber is to appear with a cameo role in the film Zoolander 2.
It wasn’t the first time Bieber had encountered problems with the law. In 2014, he pleaded guilty to less charges after he was found to have participated in an illegal drag race in Miami. For throwing eggs at his neighbour’s home, Bieber was sentenced to two years’ probation last year.
