Stop the presses! Hip-hop star Kanye West was arrested at Los Angeles Airport this morning, the Associated Press is reporting. West was arrested on suspicion of vandalism and battery, after an altercation with the paparazzi allegedly resulted in more than $10,000 in broken camera equipment. West's manager was also arrested.

An eyewitness described the scene for E! News: "Some time before 8, Kanye and a big posse arrived at the terminal. He got out and a bunch of paparazzi were swirling around him... Kanye had on a hoodie and was trying to get inside the American Airlines check-in area. The paparazzi got close and one of the Kanye security guys got into it with a paparazzi guy. It was a quite a scene and cops came. This all happpened while his security was whisking him into the terminal...He hadn't made it to security. It was just a mess." 


UPDATE (1:23 p.m.) The fine folks at TMZ have an awesome first-hand account and video of how it all went down:  

rik (TMZ cameraman) says he was at Terminal 4 (American Airlines) when he noticed a still photog taking several pictures of Kanye West. Erik says West rushed the photog and grabbed his camera. A struggle ensued and the still guy was screaming, "Police, help!" Erik says Kanye then took the still camera and threw it on the ground, breaking it into pieces.

Erik then went over to Kanye, his camera rolling, when Kanye's bodyguard walked up to him, realized Erik was taping, and said, "Give me the camera, give me the camera." Erik responded that he had a press pass and had a right to shoot. The assistant then grabbed the camera, ripped off the mic and viewfinder and smashed it to the ground.

Erik says Kanye then tried to leave to board his plane, but cops stopped him before he got to security. The cops then interviewed Erik, the still photog, Kanye and his assistant..

This is where it gets crazy. The cops asked Erik if he videotaped the incident and Erik said he had. That's when Kanye lunged toward him and said, "Give me the fu***ng videotape." Cops had to restrain Kanye as he tried coming at Erik.

Might want to fix your title. I was wondering who Kayne was....

"reporters" - who are really no good ass-clowns feeding off the celebrity that they seemingly despise - will get PAID!

Settles out of court, charges dropped, no jail time.

"Hey Tiny, Imma let you finish, but Bubba did the best..."

Well, you get the picture

If you don't want to be photographed in a public place, don't be a celebrity.
Link Posted: 9/13/2010 4:18:42 AM EDT
Oddly, if I (somebody who isn't famous) was being hounded like that by random jackasses, I could probably get away with what he did. Not by the letter of the law per se, but in practice, I think I could get away with it.

The guy's an asshat, and has always been an asshat, and even though he TRIES to stop being an asshat, he's not succeeding.

But paparazzi are, if anything, even WORSE asshats. I think that paparazzi should be under no legal protections whatsoever. Open season!


What do you call a thousand dead paparazzi?


A good start.
