A warrant for the arrest of Russell Brand has been issue by the New Orleans police tonight, TMZ reported. The actor and ex-husband of Katy Perry was involved in an altercation with paparazzi on Monday (March 13), taking the paps iPhone and throwing it through the window of a nearby law firm.
New Orleans PD filed a misdemeanor warrant for simple criminal damage to property, which Brand admits to on his Twitter account, blaming the late Steve Jobs for the incident.
Brand wrote, “Since Steve Jobs died I cannot bear to see anyone use an iphone irreverently, what I did was a tribute to his memory.”
Brand is currently in New Orleans filming a yet untitled movie, directed by Diablo Cody.
What do you think of the actor’s excuse??
