Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber may have just paid his dues in the egging of his former neighbor’s home, but his troubles aren’t entirely behind him.

According to the Associated Press, an investigative judge in Argentina has summoned the pop star for questioning after he was accused of sending his bodyguards to attack a photographer in Buenos Aires last year. Photographer Diego Pesoa says Bieber’s bodyguards chased him down and beat him up outside the INK nightclub on Nov. 9 of last year, when the singer was on tour in South America.

Judge Facundo Cubas told the AP that Bieber has 60 days to appear before the court and that if he fails to do so, an international arrest order will be issued.

If convicted of causing minor injuries, Bieber faces up to a year in prison, according to the AP.

On the same trip to Argentina last year, Bieber came under fire for mistreating the Argentine flag mid-concert.
