Bieber versus Buenos Aires (mugshot)

Apr 11, 2015

Justin Bieber has alienated yet another foreign country and its judicial system with his bad self and wanton criminality -- this time Argentina. 

Yesterday an Argentine judge issued a warrant for his arrest in regards to earlier summonses that the surly superstar has repeatedly thumbed his nose at.

The criminal charges against him now stem from allegations he sicked his bodyguards on a paparazzi in 2013. Judge Alberto Banos’s order also specifically names bodyguard Hugo Alcides Hesny and cohort Terrence Reche Smalls.

According to Associated Press reports, the photographer, Diego Pesoa, was assaulted by Bieber’s burly guards outside a Buenos Aires nightclub, and authorities there have been trying to detain and question the pop star ever since.

If found guilty of orchestrating the vicious attack, the 21-year-old entertainer could face up to six years in one of Argentina’s notorious prisons.

Although it’s not yet clear if their warrant for his “immediate detention” has legal force beyond Argentine borders, the lawyer for Pesoa intimated it could indeed compel Justin Bieber to return to the South American country against his will.

"Now we just need to wait for the police to find him and bring him [back]," said attorney Matias Morla, characterizing the court’s action on Friday as, "a triumph against all those who said this case was a bluff and that we didn't have anything."

It certainly isn’t the first time beleaguered Beiber’s broken laws or ended up in police custody, of course -- no word from his representatives as to whether Argentina is now on the globetrotting musician’s travel itinerary.
