Louis Tomlinson faces a longer wait to find out if he’ll be charged over an airport altercation earlier this month.
The One Direction singer was arrested for allegedly attacking paparazzo Karl Larsen – who claims he was knocked unconscious in the row – before becoming involved in a brawl between his girlfriend Eleanor Calder and onlooker Ana Berra Herrera.
A subsequent hearing on whether he will be charged, which was due to take place at a Los Angeles courthouse on Wednesday, has now been pushed back by weeks.

MailOnline has contacted a representative for Louis Tomlinson for comment.The Just Hold On hitmaker’s lawyers previously insisted the singer had been provoked in the altercation, which took place at Los Angeles International Airport.
Lawyer Martin Singer said: ‘The paparazzi provoked and caused the altercation that occurred with Louis at the airport. This is not the first or last 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.’
A previously-leaked arrest report mentioned that father-of-one Louis was observed to have ‘fresh abrasions’ on both his hands following the row.
It stated: ‘Susp Tomlinson grabbed vict. Larsen’s leg and caused him to fall backward, then struck vict. Becerra in the eye.’ (sic)
LAPD Officer Tran wrote: ‘I asked Susp. Tomlinson if he recalled ever making any physical contact with Becerra Herrera.
‘Tomlinson stated that he placed his hands on Becerra Herrera and in a pushing motion, pushed Becerra Herrera off of Calder and grabbed Calder to pull her away from Becerra Herrera.
‘Officer Chen asked Tomlinson if he recalled sweeping Larsen’s legs causing him to fall to the ground.
‘Tomlinson said: “I may have taken him down, I’m not sure, but I remember we both fell to the floor.” While interviewing Tomlinson, we observed fresh abrasions on Tomlinson’s both hand knuckles.’
