At the moment the reasons behind why Louis has been arrested are still vague, but here’s what we know so far…
According to Daily Mirror sources, Louis has been arrested in a ‘citizen arrest’ at LAX airport, following a ‘confrontation’ with a photographer.
The ‘confrontation’ happened after a ‘late night brawl at baggage claim‘ .
Louis’ lawyer has blamed photographers and said they had “provoked” Louis.
According to Louis’ lawyer, Martin Singer:
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 paparazzo 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 defence.
It is reported that the photographer has also been arrested.
According to the BBC, police records show bail was set at $20,000 (£16,000). Louis is set to appear in court on March 29.
Despite what’s happened, the fandom have been as amazing as ever, and are supporting Louis with the hashtag #wesupportlouis:
