Kanye West

Won't Be Prosecuted

For Photog Attack

EXCLUSIVE

Kanye West must have a really good lawyer, because law enforcement sources tell us it's virtually certain he will NOT be charged with ANY crime in connection with last week's paparazzo attack.

Here's the way we're told it will play out. 

LAPD robbery detectives are investigating the photog's allegation that Kanye tried to steal his camera -- but our sources say that dog won't hunt.  The D.A. will NEVER charge Kanye with felony attempted robbery, because there's no proof he tried to pilfer the camera at LAX.

We're told cops will send the attempted robbery file to the D.A. and they expect it will be rejected within days. 

The next step -- the file goes to the L.A. City Attorney for a possible misdemeanor criminal battery prosecution.   But here's why that won't happen.  We're told Kanye is willing to ante up some cash to make the case go away, and it's perfectly legal.  It's called a civil compromise and it's done everyday.

So Kanye will skate ... and probably attack another photog.

The end.

Kim and Kanye appear to be ashamed of their newborn. Wonder what's wrong with the kid?

I'm coming to LA for a week, buying a camera and following around the pap squad, taking their photos and see how they like it.

Yep, no proof at all that Kanye West tried to take the Photographer's camera away from the Photographer. He just wanted to give the Photographer's camera a hug.

What a joke the DA's office is in L.A. Do they ever prosecute anybody out there or is it only celebrities that get a free pass. For once, try making an example of one of these idiot celebrities and maybe they won't keep acting like d-bags!!!

There is evidence that he tried to steal the camera because it was filmed and we saw it! He should be charged! Now he will continue to attack photogs which is disgusting and against the law. It is not against the law for the photogs to ask him questions. If he doesn't like it he should not have gotten involved with a fame whore!
