Justin Bieber has a warrant for his arrest in Argentina, stemming from an incident back in 2013. On Friday, Judge Alberto Banos ordered the “immediate detention” of Bieber for failing to show up for questioning related to the alleged assault of a paparazzo in Buenos Aires.

Back in November 2013, Bieber and one of his bodyguards, Terrence Reche Smalls and Hugo Alcides Hesny, were accused of allegedly assaulting photographer Diego Pesoa, who was trying to take a photo of the singer leaving a Buenos Aires nightclub.

This past November, Bieber had been ordered to appear for questioning, but he was a no-show. On Friday, Judge Banos order Bieber to be arrested, if he ever traveled to Argentina. “I consider it pertinent to order the immediate detention of the accused,” Banos’ order read. The judge also demanded that Bieber’s bodyguards be arrested. If convicted for causing bodily injuries, Bieber could face anywhere between one month and six years in prison.

As Gossip Cop previously reported, Bieber’s time in Argentina was plagued with mishaps. He was forced to cancel a concert early because he was sick with food poisoning, and he was also heavily criticized for supposedly kicking an Argentina flag off the stage during another show.
