He flashed a smile to waiting photographers and was greeted by his mother, Barbara, and rumored girlfriend, Oriela Medellin Amieiro.
Brand, who is filming a movie in the city, surrendered to police earlier in the day after a warrant was issued for his arrest on Wednesday night.
He was questioned over his run-in with a paparazzo on Monday, when Brand allegedly hurled the snapper's iPhone through the window of a nearby building.
Brand was booked on one count of simple criminal damage to property and faces a $700 fine for his outburst.
