Kanye West Arrested At LAX For Smashing Paparazzi Cameras

Kanye West was arrested today at Los Angeles’ LAX airport on charges of felony vandalism. West was walking through the American Airlines terminal when he allegedly confronted a photographer and a struggle ensued, with the photographer yelling for help but not before West smashed his camera by throwing it to the ground. A TMZ cameraman videotaped Kanye in the act of smashing the camera, so Kanye’s bodyguard Don Crowley told the cameraman to give him the camera. While the TMZ photog told the bodyguard he was press and thus could film what he wanted, Crowley grabbed the TMZ camera and smashed it as well. Kanye then tried to board his plane, but the police stopped him. West rushed the TMZ videographer, demanding “Gimme that fucking tape!” and ultimately had to be restrained by police. Kanye and Crowley were both booked and released on bail.
