Report: Russell Brand Arrested for Smashing Window in New Orleans
According to TMZ, the British funnyman has turned himself into police custody following an incident in which he smashed a law firm’s window in New Orleans. Brand allegedly grabbed a photographer’s iPhone on Monday and hurled it into a nearby window when the pap tried to take his photo.
Russell even joked about this incident, saying:
“Since Steve Jobs died I cannot bear to see anyone use an iPhone irreverently. What I did was a tribute to his memory.”
However, the police thought Brand’s action was no laughing matter and issued a warrant for his arrest later on in the week. Although Brand had already agreed to pay for the damage, he turned himself into the authorities this Thursday.
