BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (CelebrityAccess) — An Argentine judge issued an arrest warrant for Justin Bieber on Friday, after the Canadian singer failed to show up for a deposition related an alleged 2013 assault by his bodyguard.
According to the Associated Press, Judge Alberto Julio Banos ordered an immediate detention of Bieber and his two bodyguards, Hugo Alcides Hesny and Terrence Reche Smalls.
The legal entanglement stems from a 2013 incident where, during a tour of South America, Bieber allegedly sent his bodyguards to attack a photographer outside of a nightclub in Buenos Aires.
Under Argentine law, Bieber could face up to six years in prison if found guilty. Argentina does maintain an extradition treaty with Canada.- Staff Writers
