Russell Brand has been arrested after allegedly attacking photographers at LAX.
Russell Brand and fiance Katy Perry were heading through security at LAX when a fight broke out between him and an incredibly annoying photographer. TMZ has video of part of the altercation, after which the photog made a citizen’s arrest and police took Brand into custody.
So what started all this? What Perry and Brand are claiming is shocking behavior on the part of the paps. Katy tweeted, “If you cross the line & try an put a lens up my dress, my fiancé will do his job & protect me.”
That’s right: The dude tried to take an upskirt and Brand kicked his butt over it. In fact, Brand told cops his motivation as soon as they arrived on the scene.
While this isn’t a legal defense for the misdemeanor battery charge Brand is facing, we sure wouldn’t convict him based on that little tidbit — would you?
Brand was booked and later released on $20,000 bail.
