Yesterday afternoon, Katy Perry‘s ex-hubby, Russell Brand, was arrested in New Orleans after throwing a paparazzo’s cell phone into a window of a law firm. ABC News Radio confirmed the incident, and TMZ reported that Brand has since paid $240 to have the window fixed.Brand, who is in New Orleans filming a movie, reportedly snatched the paparazzo’s iPhone as he was attempting to take photos of the British Actor/Comedian.

Brand did turn himself in after a warrant was put out for his arrest, then he was quickly released. TMZ also reports that not too long after being released from jail, Brand was seen cozying up to a mystery woman walking through the French Quarter.

On Wednesday, Brand alluded to the cell phone tossing with tweet on his Twitter page, “Since Steve Jobs died I cannot bear to see anyone use an iPhone irreverently, what I did was a tribute to his memory.”
