Kanye West Arrested For Felony Vandalism

Kanye West Arrested For Felony Vandalism

Kanye West was arrested at 7:51 a.m. PST on Thursday at LAX Airport in Los Angeles.

The 31-year-old rapper is being charged for battery and vandalism.

Apparently a photographer was trying to snap pics of Kanye at the American Airlines terminal. Kanye allegedly confronted the photog and smashed his camera to the ground.

A TMZ videographer was taping this entire ordeal, so when Kanye realized, he rushed to the camera man and yelled, “Gimme that f—ing tape!”

Both Kanye and his bodyguard were arrested.

Read about the whole account at TMZ.com.

    Umm, Kanye should be glad someone wanted to take a picture of his smug ass! Now he just might be used as an example for what he did, dummy.

    dumb rapper

  • http://rlnt.org Anthony

    that’s what he deserves. Thinking he a better then everyone else. He is just a hasbeen now. Goes to show he isn’t above the law douche

  • Ruth

    I can imagine that these photographers must drive everyone completely mad so I am not surprised when someone reacts in this way. They have crossed the line in how they stalk celebrities and their families and I hope that Kanye West doesn’t get charged.

  • sofia

    i find this is a bit unfair, i mean Cameron Diaz and Justin TImberlake were beating the papaz usually, they had fighting with theme, and they haven’t been arrested….it’s infair for Kaney West , and he was living his private life they didn’t have to invade him, im actually suprised cause the ones who should be arrested is this invaders dogs.

  • Lillianne

    hahahahaha

  • Kelly

    Rofl. Well, i sort of agree with the unfairness in this.
    The photographers do drive everyone crazy and they HAVE crossed lines before.
    Too bad he got arrested.

  • ME

    he’s such a douchebag. I don’t side with the paps, but he wants to be famous so bad it hurts and feels he is so deserving-so honestly, f*ck him.

  • Melissa

    He should have been arrested a long time ago for felony noise polution.

  • OH SNAP

    i sooo agree wit @ #6
    the paps shouldn’t been stalking him they desired it

  • ashlee

    i think he should be given some kind of monetary award for what he did. they should have arrested the paps. they’re the ones who created the problem in the first place. put them in jail and throw away the key. they are leaches on society.

  • http://hanmedhatten.blogspot.com/ ediot

    i dont blame him.

  • http://justjared rita

    What is wrong with all of you! Kanye just lost his mom and he is still probably dealing with a lot of anxiety. I know this is devestating to him and he might have some anger issues now. Give the guy a break! If Princess Di had not been hounded by the photogs, she might still be alive today! Have a heart and grow up!

    HAHAHAHAHA!!!

  • mike

    I still like him!

  • ha

    Wot a tool. With that said. I don’t blame him. The Paparrazi are overkill.

  • Sean

    Imagine having a camera shoved in your face by a complete stranger every time you leave the house.

    Kanye was the one who was wronged, F*CK the paps.

  • Sophie

    Urgh, paparazzi’s…. Hate ‘em MUCH. Have nothing else to do but stalk these poor people…

  • OH SNAP

    hell that’s what i’m saying the f*cking paps should’ve been the ones arrested they was all up in his personal space stalking

    that’s fcuked up

  • denise

    paparazzi deserve it. I feel no sympathy for the paparazzi, at all.

  • Denise

    FREE KANYE.

  • gina

    Honestly, I don’t blame him. The press is getting worse every day. Just in July, one man snuck onto Brad and Angie’s property military style just to get some pictures of the twins.

    Dear Public,

    what nobody seems to understand is that “paparazzi” are indeed a PR machine….

    good press, bad press, arrest or not? he still benefits from the exposure.

    his arrest is currently the number one story at CNN.com

    its freedom of press, wake up

    public figure? a bad roll model for sure, promoting violence

    and to everybody who is “hating” on the so called “stalkers”, paparazzi do not promote violence.

    sure the lines are crossed left and right, that doesn’t mean assaulting somebody is justified only because he is under “stress”.

    why in the world would you travel with a bodyguard, when he doesn’t do what he is supposed to, protect? he should get fired.

    ignorance is golden.

    F**ck the paparazzi? then stop buying the damn magazines and stop posting stupid comments in this blog or similar, then we’ll talking about F****ing ?

    Sincerely,

    Gabo (a paparazzo)

  • ally

    Kanye is stupid as hell. Just because you’re a celeb doesnt give you the power to take other people’s private property and destroy it if you feel like it.

    Gimme that tape, please. All he ever does is ask for attention and when he gets it he acts like an idiot. If you can’t handle don’t ask for it.

  • Annoyed

    Why would he pull a stunt like this at the airport, on the anniversary of 9/11? Serves him right.

  • ally

    #37, because he can’t stand not being the center of attention that’s why.

  • ty

    #1 pap’s gotta make a livin just like the rest of us. celeb’s know what they are getting into when they sign up for this biz. shit for what they get paid…they should deal with it.
    #2 cameron and jt didn’t throw people around like kayne. they took the paps camera and drove off but returned it later. kaynes smug. dude thinks he walks on water. corny ass.

  • ty

    *Kanye sorry typing fast.

  • stephanie

    low life thug!

  • Sharon

    It must be really annoying to have cameras in your face all the time, but Kanye West is such an arrogant son-of-a-gun that it’s hard to feel any sympathy for him.

  • well….

    Well, it’s HONESTLY about time. Those paps are so frickin annoying. If I were famous I would’ve been to jail NUMEROUS times for punching someone’s lights out. It just makes Kanye seem more normal, tbh.

  • samantha

    and same goes to u number #30. I agree with NUMBER 14 SO much.
    He has lost his mom and having pap. following you everywhere gets on ur last nerve. He probably wasn’t in a good mood; the paparazzi should be arrested!

  • Good victoria

    AGREE NUMBER # 5, RUTH)….They DO cross the line, BUT Kanye went to far also…..his bodyguard should have asked for more security if he was out of his league and over-whelmed…………My daughter-in-law who used to work for an airport, said most of the time they are more than wiling to help out to prevent these incidents from occuring…Kanye should have stepped back from it all and he would not be in this mess, and then …( OH SNAP ), WOULD NOT have a hissy fit right now posting vertically instead of horizonally her continous outrage over Kanye……GOOD GRIEF, it took forever to get to the bottom.. ( LOL)…

  • http://jj.com Lyn

    Just Imagine this. Heres is a young black man that has never been arrested for anything in his whole life. Now he has an arrest record for grabbing a paparazz camera and throwing it to the ground and some of you people think he should be in jail for a long time because you dont like what he said about the president.( GW Bush do not like black folks. He said that because of the president action during katrina. Most of us watched that scene and felt the same way. just give me a break. None of those paparazz that was chasing princess Di has never been arrested yet and they were part of why she is dead today.

  • Skyeatsme

    1st. Ruth, shut fcuk up.

    2nd. OH SNAP, shut the fcuk up.

    ok listen, kanye west simply thinks he’s better than everyone else.
    i truly hate him. i mean wtf? he’s exactly like p.diddy, whatever the fcuk his name is now, he talks big, he acts big, and he thinks he’s big, “bush hates black people”, “black people in alaska? there’s no black people in alaska”, “McCain is a fcuking idiot”. quotes from those dumbass idiots. 1st. I know diddy has never been to alaska so how would he know there isn’t black people in alaska? kanye, bush hates black people? fcuk yourself you low life. not that he doesn’t like them, just there are ways to handle a situation like that. he’ll help that city, just not as rapidly as a waterfall you douche bag.

    uggh, i don’t like bust, just stating that he can’t do it all in freaking snap.

    so anyways, kanye’s a douce, diddy’s a douche, and so on.
