Russell Brand got himself to the jail today.

The funnyman turned himself in to New Orleans police this afternoon after a warrant was issued for his arrest for the office window he smashed with a paparzzo's cell phone.

Brand was booked on one count of simple criminal damage to property and released about an hour later after posting a $5,000 bond.

We didn't think Katy Perry's ex would be locked up for long, especially since he already settled up with the owner of that broken window...

A rep for the law firm that was unpleasantly surprised Monday night by a flying iPhone told E! News that the window has already been replaced and paid for by one Lamb Productions.

The film Brand is shooting in New Orleans is called Lamb of God, so...Make of that what you will.

Brand's camp hasn't yet responded to a request for comment. The arrest warrant issued yesterday indicated that he would be fined at least $700 for his outburst.

And there are probably more than a few photographers out there who wouldn't mind it if Brand gave anger management a go.
