UPDATE Saturday, September 18th, 2010:
TMZ is now reporting that Russell Brand and his attorney informed the LAX Police division that a photographer had been trying to get an upskirt shot of his fiance, Katy Perry.  Perry confirmed this via her Twitter account, prior to Brand posting a $20,000 bail:

If you cross the line & try an put a lens up my dress, my fiancé will do his job & protect me.

It is unclear (from TMZ’s video of the incident), when the alleged shot was attempted, as not all photographers are seen on the camera that captured Brand’s shoving of the paparazzi.

Original Story from Friday, September 17th, 2010:
Remember that first sequence in Get Him to the Greek where Aldous Snow hits the TMZ cameramen? Well, apparently it’s REALLY familiar to Russell Brand now.

According to TMZ, Brand and fiancee Katy Perry were going through Delta security at LAX today, when Brand began striking the paparazzi following him.

One photographer filed a Citizen’s Arrest, and LAX PD had Brand booked on battery.

TMZ has video of the incident, available on their site.
