New Orleans police officials are far from amused by funnyman Russell Brand - they have issued a warrant for his arrest over his recent run-in with a paparazzo.
Russell was accused of hurling photographer Timothy Jackson's mobile phone through the window of an abandoned building in the city on Monday and the snapper filed a police report, citing "criminal damages".
US cops took the claim seriously and began an investigation into the incident, and now authorities have given them the go-ahead to bring the actor in.
A misdemeanour warrant for simple criminal damage to property was issued on Wednesday night, according to TMZ.com.
Russell, who is currently filming a movie in New Orleans, has already offered to pay for the broken window and he must be hoping the police eventually see the funny side of his antics.
