Prosecutors in the Kanye West battery case want jurors to see all the videos of Kanye attacking photogs ... TMZ has learned.
Sources connected with the case tell TMZ ... the L.A. City Attorney believes Kanye has an M.O. -- when confronted by the paparazzi ... ATTACK. They believe what Kanye did at LAX on July 19th (see video above) -- allegedly battering a photog and trying to steal his camera -- is what he typically does ... and they want the jury to see 4 other incidents to prove their point (see videos below).
-- Friday's 4 AM incident at Kanye's Hollywood Hills home, where he went nuclear on the photogs, whom he claims were trespassing
-- July 12th: Kanye ordered a TMZ photog not to talk to him or anyone he knew, and then grabbed the camera
-- March 10th: Kanye went nuts on a photog shortly after he ran into a metal sign in Bev Hills
-- September 11, 2008: Kanye went postal on a photog at LAX. Criminal charges were filed, but later dropped after Kanye paid for the damage
Under California law, judge will allow prosecutors to show "prior bad acts" if they're relevant to the case in point. Prosecutors say the incidents clearly show how he rolls.
