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.

if you're going to be a celebrity, if you go into it thinking nobody will want your picture you're a tad naive. that's how it is. paps are just doing THEIR jobs just like kanye's doing his. kanye's overrated and arrogant. he needs to chill even if he was having a bad day.

He has money and fame but he is a MAJOR LOSER in life. His addiction to himself is pathetic but typical of selfrighteous tyrants. I agree with the comment of buy your own plane you loser. Stay out of the public arena. We don't want you walking next to us to begin with.

If you can't take the heat get out of the kichen. If your famous, this comes with the fame.. He acted like a fool went to jail and the pap's where there to film it all, so they got want they wanted and the people got what they wanted... all this Just made him look bad... Grow up Kanye, set a positive exsample not a negative one, you douch bag...
