An Argentine judge issued a warrant for the arrest of Justin Bieber on Friday, making the jet-setting petty criminal a wanted man in South America and prompting widespread pleas of "go ahead and take him, then."

Canadian by birth but a true cosmopolitan of misconduct, Bieber is accused of ordering his bodyguards to beat a photographer outside a Buenos Aires nightclub in 2013. Since then, Bieber has failed to return to the country for questioning, resulting in yesterday's request for "immediate detention."

"Now we just need to wait for the police to find him and bring him [to Argentina]," the photographer's lawyer told the Associated Press yesterday, a fantasy surely shared by few of his countrymen and many around the world.
