The Los Angeles airport was the crime of the scene for Brit Russell Brand who was placed under citizen’s arrest Friday. Singer Katy Perry was with Russell, and unfortunately, they missed their flight to Vegas.
The celebrity couple was going through the Los Angeles airport security when photographers or rather, the paparazzi, were snapping pictures of the duo. The actor-comedian reacted somewhat combatively and was descibed as “pushing” and “striking” the photographers and was then taken into custody.
Hours later Russell and Katy were driven away from the police station in a black SUV. Russell was released on $20,000 bail and according to usmagazine.com, he was charged with a misdemeanor of simple battery. He will appear in court October 15.
Katy tweets, ”If you cross the line & try an put a lens up my dress, my fiancé will do his job & protect me.”
