Justin Bieber has been accused of assaulting an Argentine photographer while on tour in Latin America.

The lawyers for the unnamed man claim the “Baby” hitmaker and his security team attacked their client as he was trying to snap photos of Bieber.

The attorneys also allege robbery in the legal papers and have reportedly filed a request with intergovernmental crime organization Interpol to have the 19 year old arrested, according to Mexican newspaper El Universal.

Bieber’s Believe world tour has been dogged by a series of controversies – earlier this month, the singer and his entourage were detained for a short time in an Australian airport on suspicion of drug offenses.

The pop star has also hit the headlines for showing up late to shows and defacing walls with graffiti in Brazil and Australia.
