Actor, comedian, ruffian? The always charismatic and often sashaying and foppish Englishman Russell Brand showed his animalistic side this weekend at LAX when he was arrested for allegedly pushing a photographer.
The 35-year-old Brit and his much younger and hotter fiancee, singer Katy Perry, were apparently surrounded by cameramen and paparazzi who got a little too close for comfort.
Like a good rising pop star, Perry immediately tweeted her side of the story:
If you cross the line & try an put a lens up my dress, my fiancé will do his job & protect me.
According to police, he did just that. Brand allegedly attacked the photographer and tried to put him under citizen’s arrest. Brand was released from custody after posting $20,000 bail and it looks like he might be facing a charge of battery. There’s been no word from his camp on the incident yet. Where’s a Katy Perry tweet when you need one?
