Russell Brand: Citizen's Arrest at LAX

Russell Brand rides in the back of a patrol car after getting into a scuffle with a photographer at LAX airport on Friday (September 17).

The 35-year-old actor and his fiancee, Katy Perry, were going through security when he pushed and struck a photographer, TMZ reports.

The photographer reportedly made the citizen’s arrest with the assistance of LAX cops at the airport; police told TMZ that Russell is being booked for battery.

Katy, 25, took to her Twitter to speak out about the arrest. “If you cross the line & try an put a lens up my dress, my fiancé will do his job & protect me,” she wrote.

FYI: Russell is wearing Kill City jeans.

    Some celebrities think they can get away with everything. Some are just trying to go about their “own” business. Paps are the ones who are crossing the lines just to get that photo. Celebrities who are told get out of this type of business are cool with their fans coming up to them….it’s the invasion of the paparazzi who like to get too close and invade personal space. Let’s not forget they will “chase” these people and endanger anyone who gets in their way.

    Katy just tweeted that a photog was trying to stick a lens up her dress….Russell was defending her.

    Good. That guy should have been punched not just pushed… Russell was just being a good fiancee.

    G Says:

    I think the new paparazzi law says they can now get arrested for interfering with traffic and their targets’ vehicles. But what do you do about an obnoxious a$$shole who sticks a camera up your dress? I don’t blame Russell for this, I would’ve attacked that guy too. That photographer wasn’t exercising his freedom of speech, he was assaulting Katy.

    G Says:

    Woops, by freedom of speech I mean press freedom. I bet that pap is going to say he was just doing his job, but a line has to be drawn somewhere.

    G Says:

    Paparazzi should be kept out of airports. Why isn’t this standard practice yet??? Judging from that Kate Moss video and incidents like this one with Russell and Katy, the chaos they create is dangerous not just to the celebrities they stalk, but to everyone else in the building. At the very least they’re a big distraction for the guards and personnel. Doesn’t this make them a threat to national security?

    Why wasn’t the paparazzo arrested for trying to stick his f*cking camera up Katy’s dress? And “citizens arrest”… really? That photog is just a d**che bag!

    I wish a celeb would snap and beat the cr*p out of a paparazzi just once.
    They make me sick.

    Stalkerazzi like this are nothing more than money-desperate PERVERTS!

    WTF kind of laws are these???! If they weren’t ‘photographers’,THEY would be thrown in JAIL!!! A strange man shoving a camera up a woman’s skirt! NO FKN WAY WOULD THEY GET AWAY WITH IT IF THEY WERE JUST A RANDOM DUDE WITH A CAMERA. They follow you for hours, they will hide if they have to, they will WALL you in, shout anything and I mean ANYthing no matter how racist, derogatory, offensive, sexist……wtv it is…….they act like a pack of WOLVES….just to get 1 reaction from you so they can get their shady photo.

    How do these people fkn sleep at night doing this as their job?

    Kudos to Russell! Sounds like that pap was a perv. I know some say it’s stupid for us celebrity gossip lovers to hate on the paparazzi, but I don’t want to see pictures of people’s privates. Why can’t they just take pictures from a few yards away and call it a day? I don’t understand why some of them insist on crossing the line, like taking pictures up girls’ clothing, and making it impossible for celebrities to drive, etc. It’s ridiculous! None of us condone that behavior!

    i’m not a fan of katy or russell but i’m definitely on their side here.
    there’s only so much someone can take. you never see what the papz do to provoke and they never pay for it. how come?

    this guy defends his fiance and is arrested? i’m sorry but that’s so messed up.

    Go Ask Alice Says:

    Sems to me Katy Perry should sue the potographer/papparazzi for sexual assault.
    Taking a picture,as one did to Jessica Simpson, is NOT freedom of speech or a photo just taking a pic of a public who is out in public and taking a pic in a non intrusive way like from a few feet away with a long lense.

    Russell shouldsue to forsomething.

    these so-called photographers have to be stopped cold at some point.
