Kanye West No Longer Facing Felony Assault And Attempted Robbery Charges

Kanye West is no longer facing felony assault and attempted robbery charges for an altercation he had with a photographer at Los Angeles International Airport July 19.

Kanye West is no longer facing felony charges regarding his July 19 altercation with a photographer at Los Angeles International Airport, according to latimes.com.

Yesterday (August 16), the Los Angeles County district attorney's office decided not to file felony assault and attempted robbery charges against the rapper-producer, according to the report. Instead, the district attorney's office sent the matter to the Los Angeles city attorney to see if the incident merited a misdemeanor charge, as per latimes.com.

In a video of the altercation, West was shown wrestling the photographer to the ground. The photographer was later treated for contusion and muscle strain at Marina del Rey Hospital, as per latimes.com.

Deputy District Attorney Amy-Hannah Broersma said in her report to the court that the felony assault charges would not be pursued because the victim did not sustain significant injuries, according to the story.

The attempted robbery charged was dropped because there was insufficient evidence of any "specific intent," according to latimes.com.  

In the video, which appears below, West appears to get into an argument with a photographer outside of the airport.

Later in the clip, West grabs the photographer and seems to have him in a headlock. West also appears to force the photographer to the ground.

    • Some Dude

      Hahaha, kanue. Kanye has some good material, but c'mon now, you got to admit that some of the controversy/bullshit was brought upon by Mr. West himself. The harassment won't stop simply because he has a child with Kim K (who is known for having press for whatever mundane reason, don't really know).

  • JohnO
