Details: Smith turned himself in to police to face charges that he broke the cellphone of a fan who tried to take video of him in the middle of the night outside a Manhattan pizzeria. The charge stems from a report by a man who said he recognized Smith walking by and tried to record him using Snapchat, police said.
