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.

Justin Bieber pays £30,000 in 'street race' plea deal

Justin Bieber has been ordered to attend a 12-hour anger management course and pay $50,000 (£30,000) to charity after pleading guilty to careless driving and resisting arrest in Miami.

The 20-year-old Baby singer admitted the lesser charges over the incident in January which police initially thought was an illegal drag race between him and R&B singer Khalil Amir Sharieff.

The deal means Bieber, who was driving a rented Lamborghini at the time, avoided a driving under the influence conviction.

He was not present at the hearing but his lawyer Mark Shapiro said Bieber had already given $50,000 to a local children's charity. He was also ordered to pay a £500 fine.

It is not the first time the singer has fallen foul of the law. In July he agreed to pay more than $80,000 (£47,000) for throwing eggs at a neighbour's house in LA.

He is also charged with assaulting a limo driver in Toronto last December and is currently being sued by a Miami photographer who says he was roughed up while taking pictures of the singer outside a recording studio.
