Kanye West was just arrested at LAX for assaulting a photographer. This news just made my day. Kanye West is an megalomaniac and deserves a slice of humble pie…I just wish his music wasn’t so damn good. According to Michael Follis, the story of his arrest goes as such:
“Dude, Kanye West was just arrested for beating the shit out of a photographer.”
“Police confirm that the rapper was arrested this morning at Los Angeles International Airport following an altercation with photographers.
The shutterbugged West, 31, faced off with several cameramen in the American Airlines terminal. He allegedly smashed an offending camera, valued at $10,000, and wound up getting arrested on suspicion of felony vandalism, says airport spokesman Marshall Lowe. One of West’s bodyguards was also collared for felony vandalism and battery.
An eyewitness describes to the scene to E! News: “Some time before 8, Kanye and a big posse arrived at the terminal. He got out and a bunch of paparazzi were swirling around him…
“Kanye had on a hoodie and was trying to get inside the American Airlines check-in area. The paparazzi got close and one of the Kanye security guys got into it with a paparazzi guy. It was a quite a scene and cops came.
“This all happpened while his security was whisking him into the terminal…He hadn’t made it to security. It was just a mess.”
Investigators are currently questioning witnesses at the airport.
Both West and his unidentified bodyguard remain in custody at the LAX station. They are expected to be transported to the LAPD Pacific Division for booking later in the day.”
