Justin Bieber, Wearer of Massive Coats, Has Been Indicted in Argentina

Photographers don't like it when you (allegedly!!!) punch them.

As the abundant photo evidence indicates (opens in new tab), all Justin Bieber wants for Christmas is to frolic the streets in a massive fur coat, or alternatively frolic the streets shirtless. Unfortunately, Santa has other plans, and is gifting him an Argentinian indictment (opens in new tab). Why? Because he allegedly instructed his bodyguards to beat up and rob a photographer in Buenos Aires back in the good ol' days of 2013. (File this under: "TFW 2013 comes back to haunt you three years later.")

Bieber was actually ordered to return to the scene of the crime and testify in 2014, and when he refused to do so an arrest warrant was issued in 2015. Apparently, his lawyers hoped the case would be thrown out, but nope.

Said lawyers are now hoping to appeal the indictment, but poor Bieber (who firmly denies wrong doing) won't be allowed in Argentina until the case is resolved.
