One Direction Star Gets Arrested
Twenty-five year old, English singer-songwriter, Louis Tomlinson, of One Direction, was arrested Friday night at LAX airport for an alleged altercation with paparazzi.
The incident took place while Tomlinson was at the baggage claim area with off again on again model girlfriend Eleanor Calder, 24, when they arrived off a flight from Las Vegas. According to a police spokesperson, reported by E! news, there was pushing and shoving while one of the photographers fell down claiming he had been hurt.
Tomlinson’s lawyer, Martin Singer, spoke out about the arrest, acknowledging that the paparazzi was to blame, not Tomlinson. The One Direction star’s lawyer stated, “The paparazzi provoked and caused the altercation that occurred with Louis. 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.”
Tomlinson was placed under misdemeanor citizen’s arrest and later charged with battery. The controversial charges has many confused on whether Tomlinson was defending Eleanor Calder or if this was an intentional act by the paparazzi member.
It was reported Tomlinson was taken into police custody right after midnight and released an hour after posting bail of $20,000. Tomlinson will appear in court later this month.
It was also reported that Calder had gotten into a confrontation with a female witness who began filming. However, she was not arrested and has not commented on the incident.
This news comes right after Tomlinson, father of Freddie Reign, has recently been rumored to be back with Eleanor Calder. Tomlinson and Calder had dated for four years before they broke up in 2015. They have not commented on the status of their relationship as of today but it seems the pair has been quite cozy with each other.
Regardless of the outcome, it’s likely loyal One Direction fans will stick by Tomlinson.
