Beware of iPhone wrecker Russell Brand. The actor (and ex-Mr. Katy Perry) is wanted by the New Orleans police for allegedly destroying the iPhone of paparazzo Timothy Jackson.

According to news reports, Brand snatched Jackson’s iPhone and threw it through a window as the photographer was attempting to take a picture of him earlier this week. Brand has been in New Orleans for a film shoot.

Once the internet started buzzing about the incident, Brand tried to make light of it 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.”

Jackson filed a complaint with police, who have issued a warrant for Brand’s arrest on a misdemeanor charge.
