The incident happened yesterday after Tomlinson, arriving on a flight with his girlfriend, Eleanor Calder, asked a photographer to stop filming.

After an alleged scuffle, the photographer made a citizen's arrest on Tomlinson.

Tomlinson was released, and a court date was set for March 29.

Martin Singer, his lawyer, in a statement said the paparazzi "provoked and caused the altercation" and that Tomlinson came to his girlfriend's defence after she was being "attacked."

One Direction, which formed in 2010, has had hits including "Drag Me Down," ''Story of My Life," ''What Makes You Beautiful," ''Perfect" and "Best Song Ever."
