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 don't understand why these celebs attack photographers like this. Why be in this business when you want privacy? What a cry baby! Loser.

    I love hearing that one of these losers either got their ass kicked, their camera destroyed or a combination of the two.

    I don't think these can't-hack-it dorks with cameras (I don't want to denigrate photographers by calling these turds that) deserve any protection under our laws. They deserve less protection than insects.

    This will probably be the wake up call he needed in life, what a jerk. I assume he'll get celebrity treatment (read: a slap on the wrist) ending in a fine, restitution for damaged property, possibly community service and maybe anger management course. Unfortunately they won't 'throw the book at him', but we can always hope.

    Good!! I am so glad to see someone finally shut his whiny racist mouth!! Of course, I'm sure he will issue a statement ala his remark on the live telethon after Katrina.... "George Bush hates black people". I'm sure he will blame this on race as well. Oh, and Kanye...your music SUCKS.

    These celebrities take liberties knowing that all they'll get is a slap on the wrist and a fine which will be chump change to them. Somebody needs to be made an example of...
