One Direction star Louis Tomlinson has been arrested for allegedly attacking a photographer at an airport.
The 25-year-old was returning from a trip to Las Vegas with his girlfriend Eleanor Calder, when paparazzi spotted the pair – who recently reconciled after splitting in 2015.
According to TMZ, the incident happened in Los Angeles on Friday night. It is alleged that Louis knocked a photographer to the floor when he began taking pictures of the pair, and the man has reportedly sustained injuries to his back and head.
Source say the photographer made a citizen’s arrest on Louis, which led to him visiting the police station on Saturday morning.

It is also reported that Eleanor got into an argument with onlookers who began filming the incident.
In a statement, Louis’ lawyer Martin Singer said, “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 defence.”
