Russell Talks Monogamy
Russell Brand opens up after splitting from Katy Perry.
Looks like Russell Brand’s temper could get him into more trouble than he originally thought. According to TMZ, Russell Brand was arrested and booked for a felony, not a misdemeanor on Thursday.

In Louisiana, property damage that exceeds $500 triggers a felony arrest. Monday, Brand supposedly smashed a photographer’s iPhone on Monday which costs around $700.

Brand tweeted about the 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.

Whether or not prosecutor’s go forward with the felony charges remains to be seen.
