Russell Brand Is Going To Fight Felony Charges

Oh, it's on now!

Russell Brand isn't take this lying down.

Nope!

After getting arrested in New Orleans for throwing a paparazzo's iPhone through a window, the actor/comedian plans on fighting the felony charges that could very well be filed against him.

Soon after Russell was free on a $5,000 bond, he contacted a high-powered NOLA attorney, Robert Glass because he believes the damage he caused was less than $500 (the minimum amount that makes the crime the felony).

He already paid $240 to fix the window and claims the damage to the iPhone was minor.

Plus, he wants to make it clear that he was provoked by the photog.

Actually, it looks like he has a decent argument on his hands. We don't condone violence or damaging other people's property in any way - and yeah this was a pretty stupid thing to do - but it looks like Russell may have the law on his side this time.

What do U think? Does Russell deserve the felony charges??

    Ok an iphone costs around $300 and the window was $240. Guess what that is over $500. He should face felony charges. He stole someone's property and destroyed it. He has no right to say what someone should or shouldn't do with their own property. He has no right to take someone's property.

    Being provoked is his defense? Bullshiz. He is on a public street and the person took his picture. It does not give him the right to chuck there phone through a window. 2 years is too much, but celebrities make their money by being very public figures. They have to take the slightly irritating with the money. He is just a dumbassed selfish buffoon. Throw his ass in jail for a few days. His behavior ranks down there with Lindsay.

    So the guy in the car provoked him? Mario supports him? Did Mario just out him? Everyone knows Mario only believes in the law when it supports gays so I think we just found out why Katy dumped his ass

    Let's see; paps can follow a human being around and harass him every minute of every day of his life, snapping photos of personal and private life and yelling obnoxious questions about his personal life (hey Russell–what about your divorce) and finally, the guy has had ENOUGH and he snaps by throwing the photographers phone??? What an enormous idiot baby-psycho nut is the photographer. Imagine that our laws protect such bullies as paps. I hope Russell goes after you with him attorneys and ruins your pathetic lives, you sickening, boundaryless fools.

    Who ever thinks that paparazzi do a decent job are pathetic! What they do is called bullying! I'm sure that they were rude and that's why Russell got mad! TEMA Russell! Hate paps!

    I had said when this first went down the NOLA cops don't play (also La=Napelonic Code). In a place that's trying to whitewash its rep as the murder capital of the US this being charged as a felony is not only ridiculous but shameful. Not a fan or a hater of RB but this should really be charged as a misdemeanor and he should be treated as leniently as they do do their repeat offenders and killers..
