Justin Bieber is no longer regarded a fugitive in Argentina for failing to show up for questioning on an assault in 2013.
The 21 year old singer was requested to attend questioning in November last year following an alleged assault in a nightclub in Buenos Aires. An arrest warrant was issued in April due to his absence which would have seen Bieber taken into custody if he travelled to the South American country.
The incident occurred in 2013 after photographer Diego Pesoa claimed the star ordered one of his bodyguards to assault him. Pesoa accused the singer of setting his employee on him when the photographer attempted to take pictures of Justin as he left the nightclub.
However TMZ has reported the ‘Baby’ hit-maker is no longer considered a fugitive. The news outlet revealed an Argentinian court sent official notification to Interpol Argentina requesting the warrant issued against Bieber be withdrawn and erased from the system.
Bieber has found himself in a series of legal complications recently. The singer pled guilty to charges of assault and careless driving after he was arrested last September in Ontario, Canada. The incident which occurred near Bieber’s hometown of Stratford, involved a collision between the ATV (all terrain vehicle) he was driving and a minivan. In June Justin was ordered to pay a $750 fine for careless driving with the assault charge being dropped.
The star also pled no contest to vandalism after being accused of egging Jeff Schwartz’s house in California. Justin paid out $80,000 to his neighbour to repair the damage and was put on probation for the incident from January 2014.
