New Orleans police charged actor Russell Brand yesterday with two misdemeanor counts of criminal damage to property for throwing a photographer’s iPhone through a window. Bail was set at $5,000 and Brand was sent on his way.

Brand turned himself in after police issued a warrant for his arrest in response to photographer Timothy Jackson’s complaint about the phone-throwing incident. Brand allegedly snatched Jackson’s iPhone and threw it through the window of a New Orleans law office as the photographer tried to take his picture earlier this week.

Brand later made light of his actions on his Twitter feed with a post that said: “Since Steve Jobs died I cannot bear to see anyone use an iPhone irreverently, what I did was a tribute to his memory.”

According to news reports, the damage caused by Brand totaled $700. He has reportedly already paid $240 for the replacement of the broken window.
