Kanye West isn't the only celebrity known for attacking paparazzi but law officials in L.A. are planning to make an example out of him. Yeezy is getting prosecuted for messing with a photographer's equipment at LAX over the summer and the reason why he'll face criminal charges is due to his history of attacking paps says TMZ.
There was a case filed against Kanye for a 2008 incident but those charges were dismissed after Kanye paid for the repair. A lot of cases like this get dismissed. However, this time around Ye faces misdemeanor charges (criminal battery and attempted grand theft for grabbing at the camera), each of which carries a penalty of up to six months in jail or a $1,000 fine.
I still don't get how someone so anti-paparazzi got mixed up with the Kardashians, though.
