Busted

9/11/2008 12:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kanye West has just been arrested at LAX for felony vandalism.

A still photographer was trying to take pics of Kanye at the American Airlines terminal. According to our guy on the scene, Kanye allegedly confronted the photog and smashed his camera to the ground.

Our photog then began videotaping the scene when Kanye's bodyguard grabbed our camera -- a struggle ensued and the bodyguard threw the video camera to the ground, breaking it.

When Kanye realized our camera guy had videotaped the incident, he rushed our guy and yelled, "Gimme that f**king tape!"

Both Kanye and his bodyguard have been arrested and will be booked.

    This Urkle look alike's 15 minutes are over. What a loser. When you make the decision to become a performer/celebrity, you have to put up with this. If you don't like it, then slither back into obscurity.

    I'd rather listen to his music than the Dixie Chicks. Ya'll happy to see another black man arrested? How about using those pictures to snap shots of crooked cops or bogus congressmen instead of rappers, actors, and athletes? You know, people that really affect the lives of millions.

    High time the paparazzi realized that permission is needed before taking a person's photograph.Lest they send our famous people to the world beyond like they did to princess Dianna.Their rights ends at press conferences and press briefings.No one has the right to take the picture(s) of another without permission.You can't send a man to jail because he refused you taking his photograph.

    Kanye was out of order. That is a fact. When he was a nobody {still is} wanting to be a {somebody} still isn't,the paparazzi , the media, were essential. Publicity is essential. Now that he is a celebrity[ one of the dime a dozen ones}, with lots of money{for now}, he obviously believes that he is omnipotent, Well, as celebrities historically have discovered : " in one day & out the next" at the whimof the public...& the Media. As to your own person, it is yours in your own right.as to your "celebrity".we made you, we can break you. We own you.

    Rrj pompeye Kanye west is seeing things that I will never see in my dreams. You are not privy to my dreams. You do not anything about my life. You do not know me. You have no knowledge of just what I have seen in my life, nor what I will see in the future. Do not use that man as a standard of the worth of my life. Well I certainly don't respect your opinion that :ya'all sad people struggling to keep up with a trensetter like him" !! You shouldn't project your own values upon other people.It makes you look stupid....., because it exemplifies how you cannot differentiate between people & their own personal values. You are a little on the daft side.!

    Don't people realize he's still mourning the lost of his mother pain causes you to react any alot of different ways especially if you haven't begin to heal!! The world will never understand the black race the man said get the camera out of his face since he didn't that was he's reaction Remember every action is a reaction good or bad! I bet if Mccain would've said get the camera out of my face the camera would've gotten removed the same way or worse if that camera man would've did as he was requested. The world want too hate us but you can't help but too love us and far as his music Don't listen

    I think that Kanye is under a lot of stress and the media needs to leave him alone. He should not have been arrested.

    4everblack & stupid grief is a cheap excuse for violence. & if it were, perhaps he should exppress his violence born of grief toward the "plastic surgeon" who may or may not have cotributed toward his mother's death. Maybe he should have beaten up his mother who wasso vain, that she had the plastic surgery that preceded her death...maybe he shouldbeat himself up for not dissuading her from having the surgery....& still yet, because he paid for the surgery. What is their to understand about blacks.........they are humans. they have emotion & physical feeling the same as any human. They bleed the same. Oh .....silly me.....they are a different color.Well color doen't have feeling emotion or bleed. And they certainly do't suffermore than any other human in their grief. What is your point. He is what he is and always was a nasty little man,

    Kanye IS BLACK TRASH! He's egotistical, arrogant, and a WASTE of human space!

    He is extremely overrated and samples so much much...NOT ORIGINAL!
    He's just a "business man" (a poor one at that) out to make a quick buck pretending to be a "reputable" rap star.

    I HOPE HE GETS YEARS IN PRISON. No special treatment Kanye. If I committed FELONY VANDALISM I'd be in jail, YOU SHOULD BE TOO ARROGANT IDIOT, KANYE.
