Russell Brand recently got into a bit of trouble with the law in New Orleans when he took paparazzo Timothy Jackson’s cell phone and smashed it into a window, but new reports reveal that he is definitely planning on combating the accusations.
“We're going to fight it,” the comedian’s attorney Robert Glass told E! Online on Saturday of the charge against Russell for criminal damage to property.
While the Get Him to the Greek actor already turned himself into authorities and was released on Thursday after paying $5,000 bail, Russell still wants to clear his name.
Russell, newly divorced from Katy Perry, has allegedly already paid for the broken office window that he shattered and may claim that he was provoked by the photographer in an attempt to have the charges dropped in court.
Good luck, Russell!
