Despite his apology for his bad behavior at his Comedy Central roast, it seems like Justin Bieber is still finding himself on the wrong side of the law.

A judge in Argentina has issued a warrant for his arrest stemming from a 2013 scuffle between a photographer and his bodyguard.

Justin Bieber sued by egging victims for assault and battery

While he was in the South American country in December 2013, Bieber visited the trendy Palermo Hollywood neighborhood, including a stop at a popular nightclub. Local photographer Diego Pesoa claims the singer and one of his bodyguards assaulted him when he tried to snap a pic of Biebs leaving the club.

In November of last year, a local judge magistrate issued a summons for Bieber and the bodyguard to return to the country for questioning. The 21-year-old never showed.

Now, should he return to Argentina, both Bieber and his bodyguard could be arrested and serve between one month and six years in prison for assault charges.

The order from Judge Alberto Julio Banos stated he considered it "pertinent to order the immediate detention of the accused" -- though it seems unlikely Bieber could be extradited for the offense, as the warrant didn't specify whether it applied outside of Argentina. So he's safe, as long as he stays away from Buenos Aires.
