Russell Brand arrested in paparazzi scuffle
LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - "Get Him to the Greek" star Russell Brand was taken into police custody Friday after reportedly "pushing and striking" photographers at Los Angeles International Airport.
The paparazzi were snapping photos of him and his fiancee, singer Katy Perry, while they were going through airport security.
One of the photographers placed the actor-comedian under citizen's arrest, according to US Weekly. After being interviewed by airport police, Brand was escorted away for suspected battery.
Brand and Perry both missed their scheduled flight to Las Vegas.
