Comedian Russell Brand is reportedly wanted by police for allegedly grabbing a small iPad-like device from a photographer in New Orleans and hurling it through a window.

The cops have issued a misdemeanour warrant for Brand's arrest, reports gossip website TMZ. Although eyewitnesses claim an iPhone was lobbed, it is impossible to discount the possibility that it was a palm-sized new iPad.

Photographer Timothy Jackson told police he was using a device markedly similar to an iPad in a car, attempting to use it to take photos of the actor-comedian who recently divorced from Katy Perry. Brand allegedly reached into the car, grabbed the miniature-style voice-enabled fondleslab and hurled it through a nearby window.

Jackson is accusing him of criminal damages.

Brand took to Twitter to defend himself, claiming that what he did was "a tribute" to Steve Jobs and his iPhone iPad success.

New new iPads are likely to be in short supply tomorrow when they launch in shops. They'll be even shorter if people follow Brand's example.

The Daily Mail has a full description of the tiny iPad incident here. ®
