An Argentine judge
ordered the arrest of pop star Justin Bieber if he
sets foot in the country after the Canadian singer
failed to face questions about an alleged assault
at a Buenos Aires nightclub in 2013, his court
secretary said on Friday.
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 neighborhood.
Entertainment website FarandulaShow
(www.farandulaShow.com) posted a copy of the
court ruling ordering Bieber be detained on its
web page. Court secretary Soledad Nieto, a co-
signatory of the order paper, confirmed the
document was authentic.
"I consider it pertinent to order the immediate
detention of the accused," read Judge Alberto
Julio Banos' order, which is dated April 8.
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 has had a string of run-ins with the law in
several countries.
Bieber's representatives did not immediately reply
to a request for comment.
