Russell Brand

Russell Brand has been in the news lately for losing his temper and throwing a man's phone through a window.  Not reports are saying an arrest warrant has been issued for the comedian.

Russell Brand is down in New Orleans right now working on a film.  Of course, wherever celebrities gather, paparazzi are close by.  A photographer, Timothy Jackson, stated that he and a group of photographers were in a car and decided to start taking pictures of Brand.

The funny man seemed to lose his temper and grabbed the I-Phone from Jackson's hand and threw it through the window of a local law firm.  He did, however, return the phone after the cops arrived.  But it seems like it might be a little too late.

Police in New Orleans are reporting that a misdemeanor warrant has been issued for the 36-year old actor.

Ouch!  All over an I-phone.  Brand did make a comment on twitter defending his actions.  Here is what he tweeted:

“Since Steve Jobs died I cannot bear to see anyone use an iphone irreverently, what I did was a tribute to his memory."

I really don't see Brand in serious trouble.  I mean he already agreed to replace the window.  We'll have to see what happens.
