Kanye West: Arrested At L.A.X.

September 11, 2008

LOS ANGELES — Kanye West and one of his bodyguards were arrested Thursday at Los Angeles International Airport after an altercation with paparazzi in which the rapper allegedly smashed a camera on the floor.

Airport police arrested West and his road manager, Don Crowley, who also serves as a bodyguard, on suspicion of felony vandalism shortly before 8 a.m., LAX spokesman Marshall Lowe said. He said early reports indicated that a camera valued at more than $10,000 was broken.

 Already creepy lookin’, Kanye West decides to gain some silly street-cred by boppin’ out a photographer during probabaly over dramatic scuffle in L.A.X.

It’s not like he wassn’t going to be arrested.  You’re in an airport, where there is…take note…


This has to be a “what were you thinking” situation.

Think about it.  You are famous world wide and you got caught smashing a camera that is worth over $10,000 and you and your body guard head off to jail.


The singer has a history of flaring his temper. After not winning any awards at the VMAs in 2007 despite several nominations, West declared he would never return to MTV and yelling at reporters. The year before, he crashed the stage at the MTV Europe Music Awards and unleashed an expletive-filed tirade after his video “Touch The Sky” failed to win an award.
