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.

    People need to wake up and stop buying the stupid gossip magazines that these people sell the pictures too. Then
    maybe these people can do stuff like shop, go out to eat and board airplanes, without it being on the front page.

    WHY WOULD SOME ONE POST THAT THEY WISH HE GOT RAPED IN JAIL. I'M NOT A FAN OF ANYONE, BUT IN HIS SITUATION I UNDERSTAND THE FRUSTRATION NOT SAYING HE IS WRONG OR RIGHT, TO THIS DAY I STILL FEEL THAT IF PRINCESS D. WASN'T BEING CHASE DOWN SHE MIGHT BE ALIVE WITH US TODAY, BUT IN THIS DAY AND TIME NO HUMAN KNOW THE FUTURE.

You respect no one, you care nothing about peoples lives, all your worried about is makin a dollar so the fat house wife can read about celebrities lives cause her's is so depressing. Kanye is one of the most talented artisit out here right now, and there is a time to preform and there is a time to ive your f ing life! You hound people down , shove cameras in their faces and dig throught their garbage.. how do you even sleep at night?Your sick!
    I hope that every star that is sick and tired of the constant harresment backs him up and the goverment does something to stop you people! Go Kanye! Your the Best! Next time hit him in his face!

    Sadly, all these jack-asses ever get is a smack on the wrist for acting-out like this. Look at Naomi Campbell. They start to think they're bullet proof. Kanye is a mediocre talent at best and totally over-rated. After his "Cry-Baby" act after being by-past at the awards shows, tells me this is an inimature, out of control, violent and possibly dangerous individual. But as usual, our courts will let him bounce over and over again until, God forbid, someone is seriously injured by these loose cannons, remember the Phil Spector case.?? He had been threatening people and bullying them with guns for years, with no consequences. As far as the paparazzi goes, it's a job just like you or I, we do what it takes to make a legal buck and if no one wanted to see these celebrities, they would have no work.

    If you don't want paparrazi, choose a different line of work. I never see reporters bothering anyone working at the local 7 Eleven. I'm just saying.

    Yes but THAT footage was taken incognito with a BUTTON CAMERA! You know, the ones you wear on yourclothes and people who don't "know" can't tell they're being taped? So was some other footage on TMZ I just looked at. That's lame: talk to actors, tape it with your "hidden" camera, and when they realize it's on TMZ (or elsewhere), they'll be afraid of talking to ANYONE for fear that it's being filmed. I dated an actor for 5 years and didn't mind being filmed when we went out because it was part of the life, but not knowing it's happening is violating. That is NOT part of the job for them. Ah, how I wish a few people with cameras could follow and film every move of a few aggressive paparazzis in this town... Now THAT would be fun!
