Argentina doesn’t cry for Justin Bieber, issues arrest warrant for the pop star


Chances are you can cross Argentina off Justin Bieber’s upcoming world tour itinerary. That means the Biebs won’t be visiting Buenos Aires, Córdoba, or Rosario anytime soon. Or even San Salvador de Jujuy. And especially Resistencia — for good reason.

That’s because, according to the Guardian, and arrest warrant has been issued for the pop singer, stemming from a 2013 incident in the capital.

Here’s the word via the Guardian while we fast-forward to the good parts of the recent Bieber Roast on Comedy Central, which made us, ummm, kinda like the dude.


An Argentine judge has issued an arrest warrant for Justin Bieber, saying the singer failed to respond to summons related to a 2013 incident in Buenos Aires.

In a resolution released Friday, Judge Alberto Julio Banos ordered the “immediate detention” of Bieber and bodyguards Hugo Alcides Hesny and Terrence Reche Smalls.

Bieber is accused of sending the bodyguards to attack photographer Diego Pesoa outside a Buenos Aires nightclub. Bieber never returned to Argentina to respond to questions about the incident.


Under Argentine law, Bieber would face between one month and six years in prison if convicted on a charge of causing injuries.

The warrant did not specify whether it extended beyond Argentina.

Naturally, Jezebel is telling Bieber to just stay away.

That’s solid advice.
