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.

Question now is what to charge this s***bag with.


Besides faking an injury.


Filing a false police report, etc.


Can they take away his "card," TMZ?


Can you have him black-balled from this pt forward?

Seems to me that this Dano likes to incite trouble in order to make money off of the celebrities he antagonizes. I think he needs investigating.

Nothing will top the Spears meltdown. She was a goofball for that.

Again??? Thank you Kanye for making it more difficult for black men, and promoting black stereotypes. I'm tired of seeing ignorant black men like Kanye in the media. Come on Hollywood, there are millions of intelligent black men in the world. Stop covering the ignorant ones. Please!!!

the bottom line, this satanic piece of sh!t is just playing everyone. His new album sucks so this is just another way to stay on TMZ and try to move that failed album. That big whore who spat out his demon seed can't help sell that crappy album so maybe pushing a photog will. And whoever bought that T-shirt of his please stop and use that well fair check to buy food

I love it. The more he tries avoid paparazzi's... the more paparazzis he will get. His IQ must be really low.

Try that with me Kanye. You'll be spitting out teeth before the first paparazzi gets a shot off.

Semper Fi.
