Russell Brand Arrested At LAX: KNX 1070’s Jack Salvatore Reports

The 35-year-old British actor-comedian was taken into custody Friday at Los Angeles International Airport for a misdemeanor charge of simple battery with bail set at $20,000, according to police. Los Angeles Airport Police spokeswoman Belinda Nettles said the victim, a paparazzo who was not identified, placed Brand under citizen’s arrest.

The alleged attack involving the two-time MTV Video Music Awards host and “Get Him to the Greek” star was first reported by TMZ, which posted video of the altercation that occurred as Brand and his fiancee, “California Gurls” singer Katy Perry, were surrounded by paparazzi as they entered the terminal that houses Delta.

 Brand’s publicists did not immediately return messages seeking comment.

 Back in England, Brand has built a reputation for his drug-addled past and hedonistic tendencies, and he’s sought treatment for drug addiction and sex addiction. He detailed his storied history in his 2007 memoir “My Booky Wook.” Brand is next set to star as Trinculo in a version of “The Tempest” and the title character in a remake of “Arthur.”
