Just before 2pm this afternoon, Russell Brand was arrested and detained after he assaulted photographers at Los Angeles International Airport, and a spokesperson for LAX PD confirmed that the photog, who apparently suffered facial injuries, will press charges for battery.
Brand initially complained to airport police that the paparazzi were trying to get upskirt shots of his fiancee Katy Perry, and after the photogs got a little too close for comfort, they felt the wrath of Russell.
The photog placed the Brand under private person's arrest, and after he chatted with LAX PD, Brand was taken into custody, and he'll be booked at the LAPD Pacific Division station.
Yikes! Who do you believe?
