Russell Brand Arrested in New Orleans: Report

Russell Brand has been arrested on Thursday (March 15) in New Orleans, La.

The 36-year-old comedian allegedly took the iPhone of a photographer and threw it through a law office’s window, according to TMZ.

“Since Steve Jobs died I cannot bear to see anyone use an iPhone irreverently. What I did was a tribute to his memory,” Russell posted about the incident on his Twitter account.

Russell turned himself into the police earlier in the day, and also offered to pay for the property damage.

Also pictured inside: Russell on the set of the Diablo Cody flick he is currently filming, early in the day on Thursday (March 15).

    Russell Brand has never been one of my favourite people and this latest report simply confirms it. He strikes me as an eccentric Englishman who needs some sort of help – and a movie actor he’s not!

    He has always been a little crazy, this one. They explain it well too (http://thecelebritycafe.com/feature/2012/03/russell-brand-arrested-criminal-damage), but I didn’t know that he had turned himself in. Well, at least he’s better than most of the celebrities then.
