Red Cross

Clears Kanye West in

Battery Case

1/29/2010 3:34 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kanye WestKanye West's criminal case involving an LAX run-in with photographers was dismissed a few minutes ago ... after his lawyer presented proof Kanye performed community service with the Red Cross.

Kanye and his manager, Don Crowley, had been charged with vandalism, battery and grand theft after they smashed the camera equipment of two photogs at LAX on September 11, 2008.

The judge agreed in October to dismiss the case if Kanye and Crowley showed proof they had each performed 50 hours of community service. Both men also agreed to take an anger management class.

Today, Kanye's lawyer, Blair Berk, and Crowley's attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, went to court and showed proof that both men had worked for 50 hours at the Red Cross.

So the case is officially history.

I'd like to know what he did for 50 HOURS. I have a feeling he didn't put in 50 hours of work. I bet you travel and other things counted as time served for him. This gut feeling I have tells me if I had to do 50 hours, I would have to do 50. I bet you if someone check's travel and other bogus things are counted and applied to his time. Just a hunch.

And to OhMy @2:35 - We don't legally have a right to privacy from each other and there is no such thing as "personal space" when your talking law. Harvey reminds us all the time, WE HAVE NO RIGHT TO PRIVACY FROM EACHOTHER.

This is so wrong. That mentally ill little thug is going to injure an innocent bystander someday, and some ridiculous excuse for a judge will let him off, again and again.

He could have - should have - just ignored the pap and walked away.

Kanye West is just the big booger that hangs from the nose of pop music. Someday, and hopefully soon, somebody more whacked than him will do a Biggie Smalls on him and he will fade from all memory.

The best revenge would be that the paps just ignore him from now on. He only generates negative press anyway so don't give him any press at all. Then he will be begging for attention. But, dear paps at TMZ, just turn around and walk away. Turn him into the non-person that he is.
