Arrest warrant issued for Justin Bieber in Argentina


An Argentinian judge has issued an arrest warrant for Pop star Justin Bieber on Friday, stating that 21-year-old singer neglected to respond to a summons related to claims that he ordered bodyguards to attack a photographer back in 2013. Judge Alberto Julio Banos ordered the “immediate detention” of Bieber and bodyguards Hugo Alcides Hesny and Terrence Reche Smalls. Bieber’s representatives could not be reached for comment. He was accused of sending his bodyguards to assault photographer Diego Pesoa outside a Buenos Aires night spot. Bieber never returned to South America to respond to inquiries about the incident. According to Argentine law, Bieber could potentially face from one month to six years in jail if convicted on a charge of causing harm. It is not immediately clear whether the warrant can extend beyond Argentina. Pesoa’s lawyer Matias Morla insinuated that the warrant would force Bieber to return to Argentina.
