Police Investigating Kanye West's Altercation With Photographer

Kanye West May Face Felony Robbery Charges For Run-In With Photog

(AllHipHop News) When Kanye West rapped, “so go and grab the reporters so I can smash their recorders” on his song “New Slaves” he probably did expect that if he lived out his lyrics he could be facing police charges. Us Weekly is reporting that seems to be the case.

Last week footage of Kanye scuffling with a paparazzo at LAX airport made headlines. In the video Kanye can be seen trying to take the photog’s camera after telling him, “what you’re trying to do is get me in trouble, so I step out and have to pay you like $250,000.”

According to a statement issued by Los Angeles Airport Police Kanye may have to worry about more than just a financial lawsuit. The Airport Police confirmed that the incident was reported to the LAPD.

“A police report was taken by the Los Angeles Police Department and the investigation is ongoing,” read the statement.

A TMZ report says the matter has been sent to the Robbery Homicide Unit where a file is being put together, and the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office may seek a felony attempted robbery prosecution in the case.
