Russell Brand is in trouble with the law this morning, after New Orleans police have issued a warrant for his arrest!
New Orleans police tell TMZ a misdemeanor warrant was issued last night, for criminal damage to property. The warrant follows Brand’s run-in with a paparazzi on Monday which ended with Brand throwing an iPhone through a window.
Apparently Brand grabbed the photographer’s iPhone, and tossed it through the window of a nearby law firm.
As TMZ first reported … people connected to Brand contacted the law firm and said the actor would be willing to pay for the damage to the window.
Russell is still in New Orleans filming a movie. We contacted a rep for the production … who refused to comment on the warrant.
Sounds like someone’s got a bit of a temper problem!
