Another day, another celeb stealing a phone… Apparently wearing nut-hugging skinny jeans, doing yoga and divorcing your wife gives you incredible celebrity superpowers. Superpowers including being able to wear women’s clothing without your sexuality being questioned on a daily basis, creating a successful career based on mediocre acting ability and having the courage to snatch innocent bystander’s phones.
Russell Brand has been showcasing those incredible superpowers while in New Orleans after he allegedly snatched an iPhone from a man and then hurled it through a window.
According to RadarOnline reports:
“The officers are trying to get in touch with Mr. Brand,” Sergeant Frank Robertson, a spokesperson for the New Orleans Police Department told RadarOnline.com in an exclusive interview on Tuesday.
“The case is still being investigated, and no charges have been filed on Mr. Brand as of yet.”
The bizarre incident occurred at around 7 pm on Monday in the Warehouse District of the city, when a paparazzi photographer named Timothy Jackson was reportedly trying to take photos of the Arthur star on his iPhone; Russell became angry and snatched it out his hand and threw it through a nearby window.
The disgruntled British actor can be seen leaning into the window of a silver car; he is then snapped with the phone in hand before flinging it high into the air.
“The ink is not even fresh on it, this case is not even 8 hours old yet,” Sergeant Robertson went on to tell Radar. “It is just so new and there are variable circumstance. Our office don’t even have the report yet but it is an ongoing investigation.”
Look! In the French Quarter! It’s a bird… It’s a plane… No it’s just Russell Brand phone-napping a paparazzi’s phone.
