Kanye West: Charged With Battery, Attempted Grant Theft in LAX Paparazzi Beatdown

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Despite reports that he was off the hook, Kanye West has been charged with criminal battery and attempted grand theft for his LAX photographer smackdown.

Kanye went OFF on the photographer after he dared to speak with him as he left the airport ... days after 'Ye warned the paparazzi not to talk EVER.

Paramedics were dispatched to the scene, which the rapper left. The alleged victim went to the hospital and has filed a lawsuit, but charges weren't filed.

Until today, that is. The photographer hired Gloria Allred, who said the attack left her client badly injured and that West tried to gank his camera as well.

The baby daddy of Kim Kardashian faces a maximum of a year in jail if convicted of both misdemeanor offenses and will be arraigned October 10.

The L.A. City Attorney is believed to have filed the charges, after another investigative agency declined to do so after looking into the matter last month.

Prosecutors in L.A. County determined the photographer did not have a significant injury; his camera wasn't stolen, and it's not clear if it was even damaged.

No weapon was used and West doesn't have a record, so despite his hostile relationship with the media, so there was no evidence of a crime committed.

The City Attorney disagreed, which is bad news for West, who hates cameramen as much as he loves Kim and North - and in part because of Kim and North.

The guy doesn't have class. Why doesn't he just let the paparazzo do their business and not say a word or give them eye contact. Its no news if they have nothing out of you. If you confront them, fight with them or get into a conversation with them, then it is what it is & deal with it. YOU put yourself in this mess Mr. Kanye, nobody threw you in the lime light, you CHOSE this lifestyle. Then you get yourself involved with the media hungry, homemade porn star Kim Kardashian (Even more lime light) what do you expect? For them to treat you like a private citizen? You're even more crazy than I thought. LESSON # 1 in the "How to be a Public Figure" class is: Roll with the punches, take the good & the bad and make the best of it.
Being hot-headed, this endeavor is probably not a career you should go with, maybe you should choose a career that doesn't involve contact with people.

This guy looks like something that came OUT OF MY ASS - one week ago. His lock jawed ass looks like he should be riding the short bus. That stupid pathetic wife of his looks like shes been dick beaten for years. He is a little short sawed off black munskin. I can't stand the pollution either of them create.

This guy is soooo ugly. And what is wrong with that underbite???? U have so much money, get that f***d up jaw fixed, dang. He is a worthless piece if shit like that skank and clan that he is associated with. So sad for America. They pay attention to garbage like this and have no clue what is going on in the world. Remember: 90% of the Am population is stuuuupid. Period.

I don't think they're married? He's only nasty & aggressive when he feels like it. He only makes scenes at airport when he feels like it? How much has he traveled since, with no incidents? They're set up by the Ktrash clan, pure & simple.

Him and his wife both are famous for not doing a damn thing that amounts to shit. No contribution to society have the two of these made. Someone needs to kick his ass silly. Him marrying a sleazy woman who made a porn flick is the most low life thing and once again it shows what a useless fu*k he is. Her marring a gangster wannabe who is so arrogant it stinks. They do deserve each other that's for sure. Taking pictures of these two is a complete waste of film.
