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.

The wrong person got arrested - your photog's should have been locked up. Here's a crazy idea - how bout a ban on paparrazzi from airports? You create drama and then you act like it's Kanye's fault. And I don't even like Kanye West.

I hate this guy with a passion. A no-talent thug who would probably freak out if the paps stopped giving him any attention.

double standards    

Trance DJ and Trey: excuse me, he wanted fame and attention, he knew what it would be like. This fame and spoiled rotten little boy attitude gets one no where. He should be arrested. And a little growing up might help him out a whole lot.

Just another pinhead celebrity who believes his own press release. Shouldn't he be in prison for his dating habits?

Paps are annoying but from the video this one was clearly within his boundaries. He wasnt in Kanyes face and I have zero sympathy for stars and paps. Move to Iowa if you dont want paps to hound you! They all get paid ridicluous amounts of money and love fame but complin when paps photogrph them? YOU CAN NOT HAVE IT BOTH WAYS. I know you are celebs and think you deserve both ways but you dont! Just because you dont like something doesnt mean you can destroy it. Kanye is over rated and over paid and UNDERtalneted. He should be happy a pap is taking his picture. In 3 yrs no one will know who he is!
