Louis Tomlinson Hiding Out After Arrest, Victim Of Fight Threatens To Sue
Louis Tomlinson of One Direction was arrested on March 3 after getting into a physical fight with a photographer. After getting caught up in the scuffle, a fan who got injured during the brawl is threatening to sue the pop star.
The 25-year-old singer has reportedly hiding out since the arrest at Los Angeles International Airport. Tomlinson was told to stay indoors.
Radar Online snapped photographs of a delivery man leaving Tomlinson’s home in Los Angeles on Saturday evening.
The One Direction member was caught on video by an onlooker who saw the aggressive altercation unfold.
Louis Tomlinson was seen lunging at a photographer who was taking photographs of him and his girlfriend, Elanor Calder, as they made their way to baggage claim.
The photographer has been identified as Karl Larssen who told reporters that Tomlinson “lifted my leg and then hit me and I hit my own head.”
“I was so disoriented and I heard everyone screaming.”
Tomlinson then reportedly ran over to Calder, who had also gotten tangled up in a physical altercation with a 22-year-old fan for filming her boyfriend fighting.
The young fan told the Sun on Sunday that she was planning on pressing charges, which could result in a six-month jail sentence.
“She pulled my phone, we started fighting.
“The guy just grabbed me and threw me to the floor and socked me and that’s it.”
An eyewitness at LAX who saw the fight break out told reporters that the fan he struck was left with a cut above her eye and seemed visibly shaken when the police arrived at the scene.
Officials arrested Tomlinson, and his bail was set at $20,000.
The One Direction singer was released shortly after being brought in at around 1:45 a.m.
Tomlinson has a court date set for March 29.
