Kanye West had a hissy fit at the airport yesterday and decided to do a “smash & grab” on a photographers camera. Of course, being that it was September 11th didn’t help the situation.
West was arrested on suspicion of vandalism and battery, after an altercation with the paparazzi allegedly resulted in more than $10,000 in broken camera equipment. West’s manager was also arrested.
An eyewitness described the scene for E! News: “Some time before 8, Kanye and a big posse arrived at the terminal. He got out and a bunch of paparazzi were swirling around him… Kanye had on a hoodie and was trying to get inside the American Airlines check-in area. The paparazzi got close and one of the Kanye security guys got into it with a paparazzi guy. It was a quite a scene and cops came. This all happpened while his security was whisking him into the terminal…He hadn’t made it to security. It was just a mess.” (Source)
Kanye has since been released and in true superstar fashion departed on his private jet! Like he really gives a dayum about all you mortals… 😆
