Kanye West will NOT be prosecuted for angry airport attack on photographer
Kanye West will not be prosecuted following his airport altercation with a photographer, it has been revealed.
The 36-year-old singer charged a paparazzo who was peppering him with questions upon the singer's arrival at Los Angeles International Airport last Friday.
The photographer was taken to a hospital following the assault. He claimed West attempted to steal his camera and told authorities that he wanted to press charges.
However, investigators from LA Police's Robbery-Homicide Division told TMZ that it was "extremely unlikely" West would be prosecuted, as there was no proof he attempted to take the camera.
In the next few days, police officers will refer the case to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office as a felony attempted robbery charge rather than the lesser charge of battery.
If, as expected, the charge is dropped then the file will be passed to the LA City Attorney for a possible misdemeanour criminal battery prosecution.
