Remember when Kanye West got into a scuffle with a paparazzo at LAX after the paparazzo dared speak to him? Well, the paparazzi hasn’t forgotten; he pressed charges. The LA City Attorney charged Kanye with criminal battery and attempted grand theft. Each charge carries a penalty of six months, so if Kanye is convicted of both, he could face up to a year in prison.
The paparazzo hired attorney Gloria Allred, who told TMZ her client was “badly injured” during the attack. Gloria’s specialty seems to be getting settlements for her clients, so I’m sure that’s what will happen here. Kanye’s scheduled to be arraigned on October 10th. I bet this will be settled, and the criminal charges dismissed, before then. What do you think?
