Russell Brand tangled with paparazzi at Los Angeles International Airport on Friday afternoon, and then was placed under arrest by one of the photographers.

According to TMZ, the photographer reportedly made the citizen’s arrest with the assistance of LAX cops at the airport and police told the source that Brand is being booked for battery.

Brand and Perry both missed their scheduled flight to Las Vegas.

Perry tweeted about this incident, "if you cross the line and try an put a lens up my dress, my fiance will do his job and protect me."

TMZ also posted a video showing Brand arriving with fiance Katy Perry and marching through a throng of paparazzi. It does look like he shoved several photographers out of his way as he headed into the terminal but it is sort of hard to see what’s actually happening. So, maybe Brand tried to defend Perry and he went too aggressive.
