Us Weekly is reporting that rapper, Kanye West could be facing assault charges for the scuffle he had with a photographer at LAX .
Last week, footage of Kanye getting into it with a paparazzo at LAX airport made news. In the video Kanye is seen attempting to take the camera guy’s camera after telling him, “what you’re trying to do is get me in trouble, so I step out and have to pay you like $250,000.”
According to a statement released by Los Angeles Airport Police, Mr. West may have more than a financial lawsuit on his way. The Airport Police confirmed that the situation was reported to the LAPD.
“A police report was taken by the Los Angeles Police Department and the investigation is ongoing,” read the statement.
A TMZ report states that the Robbery Homicide Unit are now handling the incident and a file is being assembled. The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office may persue a felony attempted robbery prosecution in the case as well.
