Justin Bieber has a warrant for his arrest in Argentina, and the pop star could now risk being arrested and brought to trial even if he doesn’t set foot in the South American nation.
But Bieber doesn’t seem too concerned, as he responded to the latest arrest warrant by jetting off to party in California.
This week, a court in Argentina issued a warrant for Bieber’s arrest after a photographer accused the pop star of assaulting him. The photographer claimed that Bieber and a bodyguard attacked as he tried to take a picture of Justin leaving a nightclub in Buenos Aires in 2013.
The warrant means that Justin Bieber will be arrested if he sets foot in Argentina, but the judge has also asked the international police agency Interpol to arrest him wherever he is found.
“Justin seemed unconcerned as the news was revealed,” the report stated. “Instead of worrying about it, he instead partied alongside close friend Kendall Jenner at the Coachella music festival.”
This is not the first time that Bieber has been in trouble with the law. Back in January 2014, he was picked up in Miami Beach on suspicion of driving under the influence and drag racing through a residential neighborhood.
The Mirror reported about the incident.
“He was allegedly in a rented yellow Lamborghini at the time. The singer told cops he had taken anti-depressents, drank a beer and was smoking marijuana all day, according to police sources. The pop star was incoherent, had his hands in his pockets, was driving without a valid license and resisted arrest without violence, Miami Beach Police Chief Raymond Martinex told the Miami Herald at the time.”
The pop star ended up taking a plea deal that included making a $50,000 donation to a local youth organization as part of the arrangement.
If Justin Bieber is convicted of the charges in Argentina, he could face between one month and six years in prison.
