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.

I will give him some slack because I know he's still grieving the loss of his mom, but he was an A** before & he's still an A**. He needs to take his money and retire to Switzerland if he doesn't want anyone to be interested in him. He wants to be a star, paps are the trade off. Now, they in now way have any right to endanger him, that's for sure, but he has no right to destroy their equipment.

Well Gemini's have seveeral sides don't they? Guess they caught him on the 'wrong side' LOLOL Seriously, though if enough people act like this then the Pap will stop fking with people all up in their face and space!...give people some distance and they might not be so crazed! Even if he goes to trial, it will be a fat fine that he can pay without blinking so who really cares anyway? Next time they'll photograph him from afar with a Zoon lens! Hey Kanye...ever think of getting your own private jet? That way you won't have to walk thru the public/common area...hmmm just a thought. RETOPP

It is about time this spoiled brat faced charges
I hope the guy sticks with them too and does not back down and they get him for it.
I am so sick of Spoiled baby Kanya whining and crying and tossing tantrums just because things do not go his way it is crazy.
He started with the whole awards thing and all that now this and that video bull about getting approval and permission to film him, He gave that permission when he became famous, Do not like it mr whiney pants than get the heck out the business.

It really is too bad he wastes his mind with his attitude he could do things in life with his celebrity. All he does acting like this though is make folks sick of hearing or seeing him.

GROW UP KANYE the Sun does not rise or set in your bum

with the fame comes the exposure. It does not work both ways. Don't worry Kanye, you'll be begging them to take your picture when you get played out.

I say go Kanye! The Papps need to learn some respect. just b/c people are in the public eye, it does not give them the right to harass people in the airports (ex: Sienna). No means no people.
