A warrant for Russell Brand’s arrest had been issued by the New Orleans police.
He has been accused of taking photographer Timothy Jackson’s Iphone and hurling it through a window Monday. Brand tweeted about the incident stating that his action was to pay tribute to Steve Jobs.
Authorities are taking the incident seriously after Jackson filed a police report citing “criminal damages.”
Brand is in New Orleans, Louisiana filming a movie. He has since offered to pay for the phone and the broken window.
