Kanye Attack

Caught on Tape

9/11/2008 2:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

We just got the video of Kanye West grabbing a still photog's camera at LAX this morning.

Click to watch
You see Kanye (in a gray hooded sweatshirt) and his bodyguard/road manager (in the red) grabbing the camera away from the photog. It appears the bodyguard, Don Crowley, gets the camera and Kanye gets the lighting component. Crowley smashes the camera to the ground and Kanye does the same with the light.

Erik, our camera guy, then comes closer and the bodyguard then comes up and wrestles his camera away, ultimately breaking it.

As we first reported, both Kanye and his bodyguard were arrested for vandalism. They're both being held on $20,000 bail.

Kanye and his pal are just a bunch of low rent uneducated punks with no respect for anyone who is not giving them money. He needs to spend some time in jail for assault, which is exactly what this is.

anyone hating on Kanye for something like this is retarded. funny how the video doesn't show anything prior to Kanye grabbing the camera....i wonder what was said? If someone came up in your face and said obnoxious stuff constantly, what would you do? I would say " i got an idea, leave or i make you leave" Just because he is a star, they press his buttons. Glad dude stays real. keep it real, 10K is nothing, F dudes camera

So he'll replace the equipment he broke and probably get sued for traumatizing the paps. It's utter foolishness.

Top cop Bill Bratton needs to quit worrying about Lindsay Lohan's sexuality and do something to enforce laws against celebrity stalking and aggressive paparazzi.

WOW!!! What a complete bunch of idiots! Like they thought they would get away with doing that? Several camera people and hundreds of witnesses? I D I O T S!!!!!!! The paps may be a complete pain for celebs, but these paps got the shots they wanted AND will probably get a ton of $ in upcoming lawsuits! Kanye sure is a pissy little bitch! Now he'll pay for it and the paps will be out for create more drama and probably even more blood thirsty when they see him now. It's like a golden ticket for the paps.
