I can confirm this bill of information. This is a misdemeanor 1 count of criminal damage to property that was filed against Mr. Brand. This has gone to the municipal court and they will set a date for arraignment.
The comedian and actor Russell Brand has been charged with criminal damage after throwing a photographer's phone through a window in New Orleans in March. If convicted, he could face six months in jail or 10 hours of community service.
