Law enforcement sources believe 'Ye may have committed attempted ROBBERY as well as assault at LAX, where he freaking lost it on a paparazzo.

Paramedics arrived on the scene and the victim, who was knocked to the ground, was taken to a hospital following the attack, after which Kanye fled.

The Robbery Homicide Unit and LAPD are investigating.

The victim wants to press charges against Kanye West, TMZ reports, and has already been interviewed by the police regarding the incident.

They determined he did indeed suffer injuries during the attack, but police will reportedly refer the case to the D.A. as a felony attempted robbery.

Standard operating procedure is to go after a suspect on the most serious charge he may have committed, even if he also committed another (battery).

Take a look at what happened earlier today below:

Kanye was leaving the terminal with his bodyguard when about 4-5 paparazzi members approached and began to take photos, which he despises.

One of them was rather aggressive with questions, something he's been particularly sensitive to since ever since he started dating Kim Kardashian.

When the dude refused to heed the rapper's warning to back off and not talk (ever), Kanye exploded in epic fashion, even by Kanye standards.

Whatever you think of his actions, clearly, this is an ongoing issue for West. See some of Kanye's previous violent run-ins with cameramen below:
