Louis Tomlinson was arrested Friday night at LAX after allegedly fighting with a photographer.
Louis' lawyer is saying the paparazzi is the one to blame, although the photographer has not made a comment yet. Louis was apparently at baggage claim with on again/off again girlfriend Eleanor Calder after arriving on a flight from Las Vegas.
E! News is reporting that Tomlinson was surrounded by paparazzi and there was pushing and shoving. A camera-man fell down and claimed to have hurt himself, causing Louis to be placed under misdemeanor citizen's arrest and later charged with simple battery.
Martin Singer, Louis' Lawyer, has 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 taken into police custody and released an hour later after posting a $20,000 bond. He has a court date late this month.
