Rapper Kanye West was caught on tape attacking another photographer at Los Angeles International Airport on Friday.
The 36 year-old may ‘reportedly’ face a felony attempted robbery charge stemming from his airport altercation with the paparazzo who was asking him questions upon the rapper’s arrival.
TMZ reports, “the photographer was taken to a hospital following the assault and told authorities that he wants to press charges against West. Police officers will refer the case to the L.A County District Attorney’s Office as a felony attempted robbery rather than the lesser charge of battery.”
Also, the case has been transferred to the Los Angeles Police Department’s Robbery-Homicide Division for investigation as police suspect West committed an attempted robbery when he struck the photographer and tried to take his camera.
