Russell Brand Out on $5,000 Bail


British actor and comedian Russell Brand is again finding himself on the entertainment section’s headlines.

After filing for divorce in December from singer Katy Perry, Brand is now signing his name on a different legal document to set himself free – this time it is a police logbook.

Entertainment Tonight confirms that actor has turned himself in to police custody not long after an arrest warrant had been issued by a judge because of an alleged incident with a paparazzo.

At approximately 4PM, Brand, 36, was booked by the New Orleans Police Department and was subsequently released after paying the $5000 bond.

The arrest warrant for simple criminal damage to property was issued earlier this week after Brand purportedly snatched a paparazzo’s cellular phone from the latter’s car when the man began to film him.

Brand is then said to have thrown the phone through the window of a nearby building on Monday night.

For his part, Brand tweeted about the incident writing, “Since Steve Jobs died I cannot bear to see anyone use an iphone irreverently, what I did was a tribute to his memory.”
