Russell Brand was accused on Monday of throwing paparazzo Timothy Jackson's iPhone through a window in New Orleans. Jackson filed for "criminal damages".

Neither Brand nor a spokesperson have said anything about it, until just an hour ago on Twitter, when Brand had this to say:

Since Steve Jobs died I cannot bear to see anyone use an iphone irreverently, what I did was a tribute to his memory.(image) 1 hour ago via Twitter for iPhone ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto

This is not the first time Brand has had problems with the paparazzi. In 2010 he was arrested at LAX airport following an altercation with a paparazzo.

At the time, then wife Katy Perry tweeted her frustration on the incident, saying,"If you cross the line & try an put a lens up my dress, my fiancé will do his job & protect me."
