The footage reveals his girlfriend, Eleanor Calder getting caught up in a cat fight with two female passengers, before the singer gets involved himself. He look quite aggressive while he approached a paparazzi after stopping them from photographing him with his girlfriend as they returned from a trip in Las Vegas.
However, the heated details of the incident are still unknown but information from the LA county sheriff's department confirms that he was subjected to a citizen's arrest at 11:45pm local time on Friday evening (March 3).
His lawyer, Marty Singer, claimed:
"The paparazzi provoked and caused the altercation that occurred with Louis. It’s not the first 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."
This ended up with one of the girl getting a cut above her eye and she was reportedly shaken when law enforcement arrived. She told The Sun On Sunday:
He socked me. He’s going to go to jail. Yeah I’m going to press charges. The guy just grabbed me and threw me to the floor and he socked me and that’s it.
Now he has been released on $20,000 bail but he will have to appear in court later this month i.e on March,29th.
