LAPD Reviewing Surveillance Video In Kanye West Paparazzo Scuffle
Kanye West might be in hot water after a photographer claimed that he was battered by the rapper outside of LAX on Friday afternoon.
The Los Angeles Police Department tells HipHollywood that they are following up on the investigation, and are unsure which charges are going to be filed. Detectives are currently going through surveillance footage and video for further investigation.
A photographer was taking pictures of West outside the Tom Bradly International Terminal when he was allegedly battered by the rapper.
The Los Angeles Fire Department was notified, responded to the location, and transported the photographer to a local hospital for medical attention.
During the altercation, captured on video, you can see the new dad going after the photographer’s equipment. “What you’re trying to do is get me in trouble, so I step out and have to pay you like $250,000,” the rapper said before leaping towards the photographer.
