The Canadian singer Justin Bieber accused of being involved in beating a local photographer was summoned to Argentina’s court, local mass media reported on Thursday.
The incident took place in November 2013 near one of the night clubs of the Argentina’ capital during the pop-star’s tour. His bodyguards attacked an Argentinian photographer who was about to take a picture of the singer, and took his camera away. Supposedly, they did it on the orders of Justin Bieber.
In this regard, the Argentina court provided a notification through Interpol. According to it the singer is obliged to arrive in Argentina to give testimony. Otherwise an international arrest order may be issued. If Bieber is convicted on a charge of causing minor injuries he could face up to one year in prison.
This is not the first singer's lawsuit. Earlier Bieber was sentenced to five-day public work and compensation of $80,000 for egg-throwing at his neighbor’s house.
