Russell Brand Arrested in New Orleans for Phone-Tossing Incident

Orleans Parish Sheriff's Office(NEW ORLEANS) -- ABC News Radio has confirmed Russell Brand was arrested by New Orleans police Thursday afternoon following a report earlier this week that he snatched a paparazzo's cellphone and tossed it through the window of a law firm.

Brand, who's filming a movie in New Orleans, faces a charge of simple criminal damage in connection with the incident, which occurred Monday after the photographer used his iPhone to take pictures of the British actor-comedian.  Brand was released Thursday afternoon.

TMZ.com reported Thursday that Brand has paid $240 to fix the window he broke.

Brand, the ex-husband of pop star Katy Perry, alluded to the incident Wednesday on Twitter, writing, "Since Steve Jobs died I cannot bear to see anyone use an iPhone irreverently, what I did was a tribute to his memory."

Chris Brown Accused of Snatching Fan’s iPhone

Chris Polk/FilmMagic(MIAMI) -- Chris Brown is facing a robbery accusation after Miami Beach police say he angrily snatched a fan’s iPhone then drove off with the device.

According to local news accounts, a police report indicates that Brown and Rack City rapper Tyga were leaving the Cameo nightclub earlier this week when a fan followed Brown outside to his black Bentley.  The fan -- Shanae Spann -- pulled out her iPhone to snap a picture of Brown sitting in the car.  That reportedly ticked him off, Shanae tells police, explaining that the singer reached through his open car window and snatched the phone from her hands.  According to the report, Brown told the woman, “B***h, you ain’t going to put that on no website.”  Brown then reportedly rolled up his window and drove away with the iPhone.

Brown has had a history of losing his temper. In 2009, he pleaded guilty to assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna.

His rep did not immediately respond to ABC News’ requests for comment.
