Russell Brand Gets Community Service, Fine in Phone Tossing Case

Tommaso Boddi/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Russell Brand will not be going to jail for tossing a photographer’s iPhone through the window of a building in New Orleans on March 12.  

An attorney representing Brand entered a not guilty plea Thursday on the actor's behalf to one count of misdemeanor criminal damage to property, but then worked out a deal with prosecutors that calls for the star to perform 20 hours of community service and pay $500 in court fees.  

The charge will be dismissed if Katy Perry's ex completes his community service by Aug. 31.

Us Weekly reports that the director was joined by Gwyneth Paltrow on a speedboat in La Maddalena on July 11 when people on the nearby beach complained to police and the coast guard that the boat was too close to shore and making too much noise. Though he apologized to the coast guard, Spielberg was fined 172 euros, or about 247 U.S. dollars.
