Justin Bieber arrest warrant issued in Argentina

Justin Bieber indicted in ArgentinaJustin Bieber has been indicted for ordering the beating of a photographer and stealing his money and camera in Argentina. This means that if Bieber steps foot in the country, he will be arrested.

This goes back to 2013 when Bieber was on his Buenos Aires tour. Allegedly, Bieber ordered his security guards to beat a papparazo and even had them steal his money and camera. In 2014, Bieber was ordered back to Argentina to testify. However, the singer was a no-show and a warrant was issued for his arrest in 2015.

The warrant was later cancelled but now Bieber, who is about to begin his South American tour, has been indicted. He has decided to avoid Argentina, where he has a huge fan base.

Earlier this year, he tweeted: “Argentinian beliebers I would like nothing more than to bring the #purposetour there but the Argentinian government won’t allow it. So sorry.” He continued: “If things were to change I would love to come but at this time I cannot. For everyone else in South America I look forward to seeing you.”

Since Bieber is planning to appeal the indictment, is it too late to say Sorry?

    I had hoped this guy was turning the corner and growing up a bit but he proves..AGAIN…that he is just a little thug, entitled and living in a bubble where HE is king. He is an embarrassment to Canadians.

    Honestly, his music isn’t bad. Nothing is on my personal playlist, but if his songs come on the radio I don’t shut them off or change stations.
    I just find him to be a ridiculous person; he keeps saying “sorry” to his fans over every stupid incident that he’s involved in, and that “he’ll do better in the future”. This guy is a terrible liar and I wonder why he has such a big fanbase anymore; don’t these people know what kind of punk he really is?
    Ordering his thugs to beat up a guy and steal from him should’ve landed him in prison right then and there; but hey, all celebs are above the law now aren’t they? All they have to do is leave the country and not return until everything blows over. But what is he going to do when he run’s out of countries to hide in?

    Add to his international street-cred lol. Nice, have an entire country after you! What an idiot. Eye for and eye, (even though he should be innocent until proven guilty), I say send mercs to beat up Beiber and take his money and have him wake up in Argentina to man up and stand trial!

  6. Teresa • December 22, 2016 @ 11:44 AM

    It’s not this is a new thing… the article itself says it dates back to 2013. That was long before he decided to turn his life around. Frankly, I can’t imagine what it’s like to be him; he hasn’t known a normal life since he was a kid.

  7. Debbie • December 22, 2016 @ 11:44 AM

    Echo cdubya and Tristan. ‘Sorry’ about not exact ‘punk’tuation, capitals, etc.on other names here. No excuses, but thought would respond right away…Bieber will avoid, or buy his way out? Or a good? Lawyer. With this spoiled brat and enabling parents, and fame, no stopping ‘it’. I do by not supporting him. Would be nice if he read some of these. And Selena will hopefully stay away from this clown. Not to insult clowns…

    When Bieber first made it Big, it was one of those great success stories and he was such a great guy – polite and humble w/ child-like innocence and charisma. Whatever happened? Surely after this many years in the spot-light and all the issues w/ Salena Gomez, he would’ve learned a few lessons by Now! Can’t help but wonder whose advice he’s taking or whether he’s taking any, he should listen to his mother and yes, it’s time to grow up and man up and be a great example to his younger brother. Bieber made it big b/c of his fan base. He needs to remember that.
    I used to be a proud Canadian fan. Sad 😭 to say no longer any more! Wish he would take a few lessons from some seasoned, well-liked celebs like Tom Hanks!

  9. Debbie • December 22, 2016 @ 12:02 PM

    Kathy Lines…bravo! I just read and responded to a story that came up about Bieber turning himself in to Toronto police concerning the assault on limo driver. I ‘belieb’ was story. ‘Sorry’ for puns. In Argentina, he can do a remake of ‘Jail house rock’.

  10. Helen • December 22, 2016 @ 12:04 PM

    He’s nothing but a nasty little punk. I guess his followers are made of the same thread. He should be put away for a few years like the little criminal he is.
    He is giving children a bad example.

  11. Mike • December 22, 2016 @ 12:12 PM

    Best news all year!!! Embarrasment to Canada he is

  12. Christopher King • December 22, 2016 @ 12:40 PM

    All Argentina is really looking for at this stage is a large fine to settle things. If the charges had been that serious, the original warrant wouldn’t have been cancelled in 2015.

    This is strictly a cash grab folks.

    I realize Bieber’s immature activities. But hey, we all know how bad papparazis are. They are provocative. They are actually ready to be beaten up and disrespected because they do not respect other people too. Their words and what they write about their victim is more than physical. What they write even turn a person’s life broken and sometimes irreparable and cannot be save. And! fir what??? Money and fame.
    I could symphathize more for Bieber because he did not choose to grow up like this, but because of being human and his weakness (just like all of us) he makes bad choices and decisions.
    But how about the papparazis? It is their choice to ruin people’s lives. Their victims can even get killed if not commit suicide because of on and on bad publicity. Remeber the late Princess D. No matter how saintly or evil a public figure is, papparazis will ruin, kill the life their victims have.
    Please…stop dragging Bieber’s being a Canadian. Canadians are no saints, they are human too..they get hurt and angry and can retaliate..it is human nature.
    No matter how kind nature a person is, he/she can be mad too

    By the way, I am no fan of Mr. Justin Bieber, just a researcher.

  15. murray salamon • December 22, 2016 @ 2:00 PM

    i would like to know why he is allowed to do what he wants when he wants maybe they should beat the heck out of him take everthing away from him and then tell us why he doesnt deserve it they should put him behind bars and throw away the key or better5 yey send him back where he came from that would be a good punishment

  16. DC • December 22, 2016 @ 2:25 PM

    Wonder how we can get a similar warrant issue in Canada ?

  17. SuZzz • December 22, 2016 @ 3:06 PM

    Wow you are all holy than thou. If you were all put under a spot light 24 7. And every error or mistake or frustration was recorded by people who want only to write any bad sh.. they can find on you. Your life would not look any different. We all do studid stuff it is hard when you enjoy the music but the rest of the Crap has to come with it. That is what he deals with because of all you perfect people.

  18. Leandra • December 22, 2016 @ 4:02 PM

    Hahahaha…”but the government won’t allow it”…chicken shit…don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time!…You can have him Argentina…he’s an embarrassment to Canada!

  19. Debbie • December 22, 2016 @ 4:05 PM

    The papparazo harasses stars, they take way to many liberties, if they had to act decently, things like this would not happen. He is not the first star to get angry and strike out. He is also young and he does a lot of Good things.Why are people so ready to judge and hate.
    Maybe they are jealous, spitful, judgemental, look to your own actions, don’t worry about what other people are doing, unless you are perfect

  20. Bree • December 22, 2016 @ 8:35 PM

    Sounds like Bieber has some solid legal counsel. I wouldn’t suggest he go back either. The thing is – Bieber didn’t actually do the physical act so I would not waste my time going to Argentina again if I were him either. And why isn’t anyone blaming his bodyguard for his actions? Will they jump off bridges for him too?
    Stop hating on Canadiens- this young man is no different than all of our teenagers except that he grew up on film and on stage and every mistake has been plastered online and on tv- we created him.

  21. Summer • December 22, 2016 @ 9:47 PM

    The whole situation sounds crazy but given his past actions, I wouldn’t put anything past him.

  22. Tess • December 22, 2016 @ 9:51 PM

    Don’t “Cry For Biebs Argentina”. Probably nothing more than another promo gambit to ramp up the tour publicity. Fines will be paid and everyone will make nice…just so fans can be charged exorbitant prices to see the “Rebel Without A Clue”.

  23. Sharron • December 22, 2016 @ 10:08 PM

    Okay I have read what all of you have to say about this young successful man. I agree completely with an36’s well written comment.
    I am a grandmother, a Canadian, raising 3 teenage grand daughters and listen to Bieber’s music. Being a Canadian does not mean I am perfect or quiet and accommodating it means I have a certain amount of pride in my country and enjoy living here. I would hope that I would be told I am a disgrace to a whole country because some guy who needs and wants all the publicity he can get tells a story about being abused by my friends. (Can you see a little old lady getting her little old security guards to beat up a poor defenseless paparazzi by beating them with our canes?LOL!) There is no proof that he even did this yet, he IS innocent until proven guilty so why are all of you getting off on beating him down? He is young and you will not truly understand what that really means until you get much older. Half of what you hear is made up publicity by who ever is looking for it. Please people sit back and relax and try to see the bigger picture. Bieber may be a jerk or self absorbed or what ever else you want to call him OR he may not be. No one here is able to look through his window to see what is really going on. He has grandparents that helped raise him and they still watch over him, and I hope he still has a strong connection to them. They will help to guide him by asking him why they are reading all these terrible things. If he was just some young up and coming guy without all the success behind him I am willing to bet that you would be much kinder. Give the young man a break and hope he can actually survive the people and forces around him that want to take everything they can from him and spit him out. I hope and pray that none of you find yourselves in the position of being hurt and abused either by someone or a job then kicked to the curb. It hurts! That is the path this young fellow has to work so very hard at avoiding so come on guys give him some empathy.
