On Friday, Argentine Judge Albert Julio Banos ordered the "immediate detention" of of the 21-year-old pop star as well as his bodyguards Hugo Alcides Hesny and Terrence Reche Smalls. The warrant stems from the singer's failure to respond to his summons following a 2013 incident in Buenos Aires, the Associated Press reports.
In 2013, photographer Diego Pensoa was allegedly attacked by Bieber's bodyguards outside of a Buenos Aires nightclub. Bieber was accused of sending the bodyguards to attack Pensoa and never returned to Argentina to answer questions about the incident.
If convicted on the charge of causing injuries, under Argentine law, Bieber can face one month to six years in prison.
His rep declined to comment on this story.
This is not the first time Bieber has experienced legal woes. He was arrested in Canada on Aug. 29, 2014 when he was with his ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez and involved in an ATV accident that resulted in a physical altercation. He was charged with two counts of criminal code offenses, dangerous driving and assault.
