Russell Brand: Sentenced for Shutterbug Cell Phone Smashing
Learning his sentence stemming from a scuffle with a shutterbug, Russell Brand has reportedly cut a deal with prosecutors that will keep him out of the slammer.
As previously reported by GossipCenter, Brand was charged with misdemeanor criminal damage for taking a paparazzo's cell phone and throwing it through the window of a nearby law office in March.
As for the deal, the actor will go free if he pays $500 in court fees and participates in 20 hours of community service by the end of August. Not a bad trade-off, as Brand was previously facing up to six months behind bars.
