In spite of exclusive video obtained by that shows Louis Tomlinson, 25, flipping a photographer onto his back, the One Direction singer claims to be uncertain about his actions during the March 3rd incident that led to his arrest at Los Angeles International Airport. According to a police report acquired by The Sun, the pop star stated, “I may have taken him down, I’m not sure, but I remember, we both fell to the floor.” The fight broke out when photographer Karl Larssen refused to stop taking photos of Louis and his girlfriend Eleanor Calder. In the footage provided exclusively to by an eyewitness, it appears Louis approached the photographer aggressively before upending him. The photographer stated that Louis “lifted my leg and then he hit me and I hit my own head. I was so disoriented and I heard everyone screaming.” Airport security stepped in to break up the fight, and Los Angeles Police Department officers arrested Louis. It has been reported that Eleanor called off their relationship after Louis’s airport arrest. Louis has apparently been lying low at his home in light of the police sending the battery case to the local city attorney’s office for possible prosecution.
