Don’t mess with a paparazzo’s camera. Kanye West is being charged with criminal battery and attempted grand theft due to an altercation with a paparazzo. The incident occurred at LAX on July 19. West has made it perfectly clear in the past that he does not like to interact with paparazzi. However, that didn’t stop Daniel Ramos from attempting to talk to the rapper.
Ramos claims he suffered hip injuries and was sent to the hospital. He has also hired the go-to lawyer for D-list celebrities, Gloria Allred to represent him.
Video of the fight shows both parties at fault. Ramos continued to provoke an already annoyed Kanye/ And Kanye told Ramos to stop because he was trying “to get him in trouble” and sue him for money.
TMZ attempted to reach Kanye’s lawyer, Blair Berk, but her assistant said she was unavailable “because it’s the highest holy day of the year for Jews” and she was at services.
Kanye’s arraignment is set for Oct. 10 and could face up to one year in jail if convicted.
But, on the bright side, if he goes to jail, he can finally escape from Kim, Kris, and the Kardashian clan and maybe come on out with some good music.
