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.

    Scotter....please speak for yourself! I know you aren't comparing Kanye to the Dixie Chicks!!! Only an idiot would do that. Kanye is a MUSICAL GENIUS and more popular and sucessful than the Dixie Chicks could EVER hope to be....STUPID POST!

    Good for Kayne - ha! Just because you don't want your picture taken does not give you the right to break someone else's property. Grow up Kayne you piece of sh!t.

    It probably is George Bush's fault. Oh and he does not like black people.

    Kanye may have some talent, but as a person he is a total JERK and deserves what is coming to him. No class.

    Good for you TMZ. It should be shown. What an A-Hole he is. If he's not having a jealous fit over loosing an award he's breaking laws.

    I hate to ruin the day of a lot of racists rejoicing on here but he was charged with breaking a camera people. Whoop-tee-friggen-doo. Despite TMZ's victory dance becasue they FINALLY provoked a reaction from their aggressive tactics, he'll be released in a couple hours (if he really is "detained" in the first place) and STILL living a million times better of a life than the miserable SOB's on here calling him racist names because they hate their own lives so much.

    And it will still be good to be him and suck to be you

    God sees EVERYTHING. This bozo, is a record-label assembly. He's a Z-grade clone, conceptually and creatively,
    of a TRUE artist. The crooks that run the "music" industry, are EXPERTS in ripping-off artists, and Creative Property.
    Vipers, the lot of them.
