An Argentinian judge has issued an arrest warrant for Justin Bieber, saying the singer failed to respond to summons related to a 2013 incident in Buenos Aires.

In a resolution released today, Judge Alberto Julio Banos ordered the "immediate detention" of Bieber and bodyguards Hugo Alcides Hesny and Terrence Reche Smalls.

Bieber is accused of sending the bodyguards to attack photographer Diego Pesoa outside a Buenos Aires nightclub. Bieber never returned to Argentina to respond to questions about the incident.

Under Argentinian law, Bieber would face between one month and six years in prison if convicted on a charge of causing injuries.

The warrant did not specify whether it extended beyond Argentina.
