The usually irreverent Russell Brand was spotted at the G20 protests in London today, Wednesday.
More than 2,000 protesters gathered at the Bank of England.
As these things usually go, a few folks lost their cool and ended up fighting with authorities waiting at the steps. Eleven people were arrested for impersonating police officers when the real police intercepted a mock up armored personnel carrier with several riders dressed in fake uniforms.
When questioned, Russell was reportedly uncharacteristically quiet regarding his intentions there.
He said: "[I'm here for] the same reason as everyone else. I'm just here participating. I'm here to observe and participate peacefully in the protest."
Peacefully is the operative word!
