Kanye West and his bodyguard/tour manager, Don Crowley, were arrested on alleged vandalism charges this morning as the pair passed a security checkpoint in LAX's American Airlines terminal. In a video clip posted over at TMZ.com, West and Crowley are shown struggling with a photographer who'd just taken some shots of the rapper. They then allegedly smashed $10,000 worth of equipment as police rushed the scene. Officers had to restrain West as he tried to destroy the camera and videotape of the person who recorded the whole incident.
Marshall Lowe, a spokesman for Los Angeles International Airport, said police interviewed witnesses and brought West and Crowley into the LAPD station in Culver City.
