Kanye West was charged with two misdemeanors after his brawl with a photographer at the Los Angeles International Airport last July.
City attorney’s spokesman Frank Mateljan said the 36-year-old rapper and beau of Kim Kardashian was charged of misdemeanor battery and attempted grand theft.
The photographer identified as Daniel Ramos claimed that he was punched and attacked by Kanye. His camera was also wrestled to the group during the scuffle that happened last July 19. It was supported by a posted video.
The incident happened a month after Kanye and Kim welcomed their first child North West. Kim gave birth to a lovable baby girl last June at Cedars-Sinai Hospital.
Each of the misdemeanor charges is penalized of six months in jail or a $1,000 fine.
West’s arraignment is set on October 10. He is not required to appear if he has an attorney. West has yet to comment on the scandal.
The airport scandal was just one of the many bad encounters of Kanye West with the paparazzi in the past.
