Kanye West Pleads Not Guilty in Paparazzo Attack Case

by at . Comments

Kanye West may be in trouble for allegedly going after a cameraman in July.

But when it comes to charges of criminal battery and attempted grand theft, the rapper is firmly standing his ground.

West's attorney, Blair Berk, entered a not guilty plea in court today on behalf of his client, as Kanye is accused of breaking the law when he went after paparazzo Daniel Ramos in July.

Watch the video of the altercation in question now:

Ramos is also taking legal action the artist, filing a lawsuit for assault, battery and restriction of free speech following a confrontation he says left him on crutches for two weeks.

The reporter is represented by Gloria Allred and is seeking unspecified damages.

If convicted of both misdemeanors, Kanye faces a maximum of one year in jail.

But there's a better chance of his marriage to Kim Kardashian actually lasting forever than there is of West spending a second behind bars.
