Kanye West has been charged with criminal battery and attempted grand theft for his involvement in an altercation involving a paparazzo in July. As you may recall, Kanye was leaving LAX on July 19th when a photographer began peppering him with questions. When Kanye asked him to stop he kept it up, causing the rapper to walk over and try to grab the camera. Kanye had previously told paparazzi not to speak with him a few days earlier.
The photographer has filed a lawsuit, claiming he was badly injured. If convicted on both misdemeanors charges he could face up to 1 year in jail.
