LOS ANGELES, Sept. 17 (UPI) -- Los Angeles Airport Police say they arrested Russell Brand Friday after the British actor and comedian allegedly assaulted paparazzi who were following him.

UsMagazine.com said Brand pushed and struck photographers taking photos of him with his fiancee, pop star Katy Perry, before one paparazzo placed him under citizen's arrest.

Airport police then took the "Arthur" and "Bedtime Stories" star into custody for suspected battery, the magazine's Web site said.
