One Direction Fans Have Been Waiting for This Since Louis Tomlinson’s Arrest
Let’s see those *praise hands* emojis, people — we’ve got some awesome Louis Tomlinson news coming your way, in 3… 2… 1…
Though the 25-year-old One Direction singer has barely made a peep regarding potential new music — solo or otherwise — since the release of his EDM hit, “Just Hold On,” with Steve Aoki back in December 2016, all fans of the British lad can rest a little easier tonight because… he’s escaping criminal charges!
As we’re sure you’re aware, the 1D guy was arrested in early March after getting into a fight at LAX with a member of the paparazzi, as well as for an altercation with a woman who was in a scuffle of her own with Louis’ girlfriend, Eleanor Calder. The photographer and the woman made a citizen’s arrest, so Louis was taken into custody for simple battery.
However, multiple witnesses claim that it wasn’t LT’s intention to strike either “victim.” The footage clearly shows that the paparazzo fell by accident, along with Louis, and the woman was engaging in a fight with Eleanor — how could Louis not intervene?? Sooo, reports are now saying that he will NOT be charged with criminal battery. Instead, according to TMZ, “he will go to the LA City Attorney’s Office for an informal hearing, where both sides are invited to present their version of events and a hearing officer will advise the parties how they should conduct themselves in the future … but no criminal charges will be filed.” Said hearing will reportedly be held at the end of this month.
Remember these shocking arrests of 2016?
