An Argentine judge has ordered the arrest of Justin Bieber if he sets foot in the country after the Canadian singer failed to face questions about an alleged assault at a Buenos Aires nightclub in 2013.

A local photographer accused Bieber, 21, and one of his bodyguards of lashing out at him when he tried to take a picture of the star as he left the club.

The court also ordered the detention of one of Bieber's bodyguards, a court secretary confirmed.

In November, another local judge magistrate had ordered Bieber to appear for questioning within two months over the same alleged incident and requested the assistance of Argentina's Interpol branch to help locate him.
