Brand, 36, had an arrest warrant issued late Wednesday night after the Get Him To The Greek star snagged a paparazzo's iPhone and threw it through the window of a downtown law firm building on Monday.
Brand was booked in the Big Easy at 3:12 p.m. on a misdemeanor charge of Simple Criminal Damage to Property.
"Russell's bail amount hasn't been set yet," the Public Information Officer at the Sheriff's office told RadarOnline.com.
According to the booking sheet, Brand received parole at 3:38 p.m. but is still in custody at time of publication.
After Brand's iPhone chucking incident made headlines the British funnyman took to Twitter earlier this week saying, "Since Steve Jobs died I cannot bear to see anyone use an iPhone irreverently, what I did was a tribute to his memory."
