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.

    I"m so glad he is in jail. Kanye is nothing but a racist, cry baby, arrogant prick that thinks the world owes him something. He doesn't deserve the life he has!

    Boo hoo Kanye! Are you going to go cry to MTV again?

    If you don't want to be hounded by the paparazzi, don't be rich and famous. But then, TMZ will hound you even if you're not rich and famous or if you're a has been or if you're 15 minutes of fame ended 15 years ago or............

    Mr. West has a serious anger issue. Sad about his mom but if she was to change the way God created her, then shame on her. Celebrities are stupid! At least the arrogrant ones.

    Kanye is a HUGE a*hole! My daughter went to Bonnaroo this summer and said Kanye's stupid demands to have darkness for his glow in the dark show were REDiculous and ruined other acts wanting to be on stage at the same time and *THEN* it was turning into daylight when he finally sang! Booooo Kanye!
