Kanye West Arrested At LAX After Scuffle With Paparazzi

Rapper, bodyguard both charged with felony vandalism; bodyguard also charged with battery



Kanye West and his bodyguard were arrested Thursday morning (September 11) by Los Angeles International Airport police near the American Airlines terminal, a spokesperson for the airport's public relations office confirmed.
Both were charged with felony vandalism, and West's bodyguard was also charged with battery. The spokesperson confirmed that the incident involved paparazzi but did not provide further details; the bodyguard's name has not yet been disclosed. Both remained in police custody at press time.
TMZ.com reported Thursday that West was arrested after allegedly grabbing a camera that belonged to a member of the paparazzi and throwing it to the ground, smashing it. According to TMZ, the photographer approached the rapper and began taking pictures of him. West confronted him, grabbed his camera and hurled the camera to the ground.
Another paparazzo began videotaping the incident, according to TMZ, which prompted the rapper's bodyguard to grab that camera. A struggle followed, and the bodyguard allegedly threw that camera against the ground, damaging it. When West realized he'd been filmed, he reportedly instructed the cameraman to "gimme that f---ing tape."
At this time representatives for West had not yet commented on the incident.
