Russell Brand an alleged phone snatcher

First Chris Brown steals a fan’s smartphone and now Russell Brand. Photographer Timothy Jackson is accusing the British comedian of “criminal damages” after an incident last night in New Orleans. Jackson says he was with a group of other photographers when he pulled out his iPhone to snap some pictures of Brand, who didn’t quite appreciate the attention. According to Jackson, Brand flipped out, wrestled the phone out of his hand and hurled it through the window of a nearby building. Jackson has since filed a police report and law enforcement officials have told TMZ that they’d like to speak with Brand as soon as possible. There has been no word yet from Brand or his representatives. Update: Brand has paid $240 cash to replace the window.

    This guy has had such a rough few months. People should just leave him alone and let him live his life without having to worry about being harassed by paparazzi

    just how professional can a photographer be if he has to use a cell phone to snap pictures? and it is entirely possible that the idiot made some rude comment to Brand which pissed him off lol
