Kanye West Charged With Battery For LAX Paparazzi Attack

Kanye West has been charged with two misdemanors for his alleged attack on a photographer outside of LAX airport, TMZ reports.

In mid July, the disgruntled rapper was caught on camera lunging at the victim, after clearly being pestered by the papparazzi. West has been charged with criminal battery and attempted grand theft by the L.A. City Attorney’s office. Last month, Kanye dodged felony charges after the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office decided not to prosecute the rapper. He is expected to be arraigned on October 10 – several days before he embarks on his Yeezus Tour. If convicted, he could serve up to one year behind bars.
