New Orleans police issued a misdemeanor arrest warrant for Russell Brand on Wednesday in connection with the funny man’s run-in with a photographer earlier this week.
Brand is accused of grabbing a photographer’s phone on Monday and throwing it through the window of a law firm in downtown New Orleans. According to TMZ, that resulted in the warrant being issued on Wednesday.
Brand, who is in town filming a movie, has not denied that he grabbed and hurled the phone. Earlier this week, he responded to the flap by posting on his Rustyrockets Twitter feed, writing, “Since Steve Jobs died I cannot bear to see anyone use an iPhone irreverently, what I did was a tribute to his memory.”
