NEW ORLEANS - New Orleans police have issued an arrest warrant for actor Russell Brand.

Brand, who is in New Orleans to film an untitled movie, faces a charge of simple criminal damage to property valued at $700.

Police spokesman Remi Braden could not immediately release details of the incident, which happened on Monday.

Celebrity website TMZ said the charges stem from a confrontation with a photographer who was trying to take Brand's photo from a car.

In a Twitter posting on Wednesday, Brand wrote, "Since Steve Jobs died I cannot bear to see anyone use an iphone irreverently, what I did was a tribute to his memory."

Neither Brand nor his publicist could immediately be reached for comment.
