Kanye West Will Not Face Felony Charges For Incident With Paparazzi

Los Angeles County prosecutors have decided not to file felony charges against Kanye West and his manager in regard to a recent arrest at LAX in which a paparazzo’s camera was broken.

According to the Associated Press, prosecutors have yet to decide whether or not they will charge West with a misdemeanor.

West was arrested on September 11 after he and his manager became involved in an altercation with a paparazzo, resulting in the rapper struggling with the photog before smashing the flash to his camera on the floor.

West’s road manager, who was also arrested, is breaking photographer’s camera and another belonging to a TMZ videographer.

The incident was caught on video, and released to the internet shortly after the incident.

He was arrested, booked, charged and later released on $20,000 bail.

A spokesman for the City Attorney said that a decision on a lesser charge won’t be known until next week.
