British funnyman Russell Brand is a wanted man after New Orleans police officials issued a warrant for his arrest.
The Arthur star has been accused of hurling photographer Timothy Jackson’s cell phone through the window of an abandoned building in New Orleans, Louisiana on Monday.

Jackson filed a police report, citing “criminal damages” and the authorities are taking the claim seriously.

A misdemeanour warrant for simple criminal damage to property was issued on Wednesday night, according to TMZ.com.

Brand, who is in New Orleans filming a movie, has already offered to pay for the broken window.
