(WATCH) Chaos When 1D Member Gets Arrested


Louis Tomlinson, 25, was arrested on Friday, March 3rd, following an altercation with paparazzi at Los Angeles International Airport.

He was released on Saturday with a court date for March 29th. Some reports claim that Tomlinson was not required to post bail, while other allege he paid $20,000 to post bail.

  • The One Direction member flew into LAX from Las Vegas with girlfriend Eleanor Calder and was immediately surrounded by paparazzi at baggage claim, TMZ reports.
  • The singer then allegedly pulled a pap by the legs, causing him to tip over and hit his head on the ground.
  • Airport security put him under citizen's arrest until police arrived. Tomlinson's lawyer challenges the manner in which the altercation has been characterized. 
  • Martin Singer, Tomlinson’s lawyer, told Billboard: "The paparazzi provoked and caused the altercation that occurred with Louis at the airport this morning. This is not the first or last time that a paparazzi has created an altercation with a celebrity. While the altercation was going on with the paparazzi, three other individuals were attacking his girlfriend during this incident and he came to her defense."
