So yesterday Russell Brand turned himself in after having a warrant out for his arrest. On Monday, he allegedly snatched some photographer’s phone while he was trying to take pictures (of Russell) and tossed it through a window at a law firm in New Orleans. After the incident, the victim did get his cell phone back and Russell did agree to pay for the window but that wasn’t good enough for the cops and prosecutors.
Russell then tweeted about the incident on twitter and jokingly explained why he did it, “Since Steve Jobs died I cannot bear to see anyone use an iphone irreverently, what I did was a tribute to his memory.”
So when Russell turned himself in he was arrested, and charged with a felony! He didn’t have to stay overnight in jail though. It was only hours after he was released from jail he was found strolling around New Orleans. By his side was an unknown lady friend, who looks exactly like the girl from his yoga class, who he’s been hanging out with recently. Who says you can’t go out and celebrate a little after getting out of jail?
