Russell Brand arrested in iPhone ‘tribute to Steve Jobs’
SINCE Russell Brand split up with Katy Perry, the pair have retained something of a dignified silence, which of course, is no good to anyone. Now at least, some vague cracks are beginning to show. HURRAY! We want a nervous breakdown brought on by jealousy, and now please.
And Brand is first to look like he’s going under after he had a quick trip to the police station after being arrested in New Orleans. Apparently, he tossed an iPhone off. (What is it with Brand and phones?)
According to TMZ, Brand grabbed a photographer’s iPhone and lobbed it through the window of a downtown law office. An arrest warrant was issued and the comic didn’t try to attempt to hide his part in the phone fiasco. On twitter, he address the whole thing:
“Since Steve Jobs died I cannot bear to see anyone use an iPhone irreverently, what I did was a tribute to his memory.”
Paparazzo Timothy Jackson filed a police report after the incident that claimed “criminal damages.” He got his phone back and Brand agreed to pay for the window. Basically, the whole thing has been sorted out. Depressing. However, it does look like Brand is feeling the looming misery, which is tremendous news for all concerned. It’s material for him, something for Katy Perry to moan about on her next LP and column inches for heartless gits like us.
