Forgetting Sarah Marshall's Russell Brand had a warrant out for his arrest in New Orleans on Wednesday after he allegedly threw a photographer's iPhone through a law firm's window on Monday. Brand was released on a $5,000 bond after turning himself in on Thursday. The actor was booked on misdemeanor charges of two counts of simple criminal damage to property.
According to TMZ, a photographer trying to take Brand's photo from a car stemmed the actor's misdemeanor actions. Brand later tweeted on Wednesday, Since Steve Jobs died I cannot bear to see anyone use an iPhone irreverently, what I did was a tribute to his memory.
So it turns out we have Steve Jobs to thank for not only the iPhone, but the newly released Russel Brand mugshot. Now that's a tribute to his memory.
