Lamar Odom

No Prosecution

For Camera Smashing

Lamar Odom
has just dodged a bullet -- he will NOT be prosecuted for trashing a photog's equipment  ... TMZ has learned.

The L.A. City Attorney will not file criminal vandalism charges against Khloe's hubby for destroying a camera guy's equipment last month in Hollywood.  Instead, as TMZ reported several days ago, the matter will be set for an informal hearing in the City Attorney's office.

The hearing is basically a sit down with both Lamar and the photog.  The hearing office will explain the ground rules when there's a dispute between a celeb and the paparazzi.  It's possible ... at the end of the hearing, Lamar could be ordered to attend anger management classes.

But short story ... victory for Lamar.

So not Guilty by reason of Chimpout? The judge understands that he couldn't help having a Chimpout?

...Gee, wonder if they'll be a civil case... maybe with a prominent, senile attorney with a bald former director as the sidekick/butler...

Clear and simple, he should be charged with assault. If I went to anyone and forcibly took a camera some their arms I would be in jail and required to compensate that person for the camera. It appears that those that do crime have more rights then the victims. Pucked up world that we have created.

As much as I hate those low life Paps it still not give the right for his man to destroy someone's property. Because he is rich and famous he gets off with no jail or community time.
