The photog who was attacked by Kanye West at LAX Friday is the SAME paparazzo who was attacked by Britney Spears in the famous umbrella incident ... TMZ has learned.

The pap -- who goes by the name Dano -- was on the receiving end of crazy Britney's Mary Poppins-style attack back in 2007.  The word on the street was that Dano was more than a tad aggressive.

After the umbrella incident ... Dano put the umbrella (she left it on the street and he picked it up) on eBay.  He also put the Ford Explorer she dented on the website and the bidding reached more than $30k. 

But those figures are small potatoes ... we're told he also raked in a fortune from his video of the incident.

As for Friday's incident ... we broke the story .... Dano wants to press charges and Kanye is now a felony suspect for attempted robbery.

So what he is the same pap!
His job description is to photo celebs in their natural habitat + to
get around them. He is, obviously, a long term pro.

I blame Kanye for this one. Don't let him get to you and he has nothing. He didn't say anything bad in the earlier video. Kanye is a powder keg waiting to blow. He better check himself into a nut house and let them do lots of work on him.
