Russell Brand's arrest has prompted the U.S. immigration officials to investigate the matter - which could cause his visa to be revoked.
The arrest occurred after Brand allegedly attacked a photographer who tried to film up his fiancée - Katy Perry's skirt.
"A charge of battery could result in a conviction for an aggravated felony. Any kind of criminal conviction can lead to a visa being revoked," the Daily Star quoted a source from US Citizen and Immigration Services as telling the Mirror.
"If a visa is revoked, the person will then be placed in deportation proceedings and this could lead to them being asked to leave the country and not return," added the source.
