One Direction singer Louis Tomlinson is not expected to be criminally charged over a tussle with a photographer at Los Angeles airport in March.

The British singer and the photographer, who was not named, will instead be summoned to the Los Angeles City Attorney's office to be interviewed and "advised of the law and ways to avoid similar incidences in the future," the City Attorney's office said in a statement.

"Typically there is no further action taken by our office after the hearing," the statement said.

The City Attorney's office said both parties would be asked attend the meeting toward the end of this month. It said it reserved the right to file charges for up to one year.

Tomlinson, 25, one of the members of the chart-topping boy band, was arrested at the airport on March 3 after a scuffle with a paparazzi photographer who was trying to take photos of the singer and his girlfriend.

Social media video showed the photographer on the ground and Tomlinson was booked for misdemeanour battery.

Tomlinson's lawyer, Martin Singer, said at the time that the singer was not at fault and that the paparazzi caused the altercation.
