Chris Brown may have gotten away with it, but Russell Brand is in deep grease after taking a paparazzi’s cell phone Monday night and throwing it through a law firm’s window in New Orleans. In fact, he’s currently behind bars because of it.

TMZ reports the 36-year-old comedian turned himself into law officials earlier today after they issued a warrant for his arrest. Apparently, Russell got upset when a photog took his photo with an iPhone, grabbed it from his hands and threw it, breaking a window.
