Kanye West Faces Battery, Grand Theft Charges
Fri, 20 Mar 2009 10:31:49
A team of Los Angeles prosecutors filed several charges against Kanye West on Wednesday, including misdemeanor battery, grand theft and vandalism. All three are related to the rapper’s arrest at the Los Angeles International Airport a few days after the MTV Video Music Awards in September. A video of West arguing with a photographer—and West’s manager breaking said paparazzo's camera—surfaced on TMZ soon after the incident.
If convicted of all charges, West faces up to two and a half years in jail. His lawyer, Blair Berk, declined to comment on the case.
