Kanye West Facing Criminal Charges For Attack On Photographer

Kanye West Charged For Run-in With Paparazzi

(AllHipHop News) It appears that Kanye West’s decision to charge at photographer Daniel Ramos at LAX airport has led to the Yeezus rapper to be charged by police for a crime. TMZ is reporting that Kanye will face criminal battery and attempted grand theft misdemeanors for the July 19th confrontation.

According to Ramos’ attorney, Gloria Allred, Kanye caused her client to suffer serious injuries. Ramos was taken to the hospital after the incident occurred.

It was reported in July that West would most likely not face charges in the case because of lack of evidence, and sources revealed that he would consider agreeing to a “civil compromise” with the pap. Ramos ended up filing a lawsuit against West in Los Angeles Superior Court last month claiming among other things that Kanye interfered with the photog’s civil rights.

If convicted on both counts, Kanye could be sentenced up to 1 year in jail. West is to be arraigned on October 10th.
