The British funnyman, 36, was arrested Thursday afternoon after turning himself in to New Orleans police for allegedly throwing a paparazzo’s iPhone through the window of a law firm, TMZ reports.

A $700 misdemeanor warrant was initially issued for Brand’s arrest after his actions are considered criminal damage to property,

The photographer, Timothy Jackson, claimed he was following Brand on Monday when the actor approached Jackson’s car, snatched his cell phone and flung it through the window of nearby law firm.

But leave it to Brand to crack a joke about the matter – and name-drop at the same time.

The actor took to Twitter Wednesday to psuedo-apologize for throwing the paparazzo’s iPhone, claiming his grief over the death of tech mogul Steve Jobs was what caused him to act out.

“Since Steve Jobs died I cannot bear to see anyone use an iphone irreverently, what I did was a tribute to his memory,” he wrote.

After the scuffle, Brand immediately contacted the law office and offered to pay for the damage, though an employee from the firm told E! News that the replacement ended up being paid for by Lamb Productions.

The former Mr. Katy Perry is currently in New Orleans to film an upcoming movie.
