Kanye West Charged With Criminal Battery

Can Keeping Up With the Kardashians film from jail? If Kim Kardashian’s boyfriend, Kanye West, is found guilty of criminal battery and attempted grand theft, they may have to.

September has been a month of ups and downs so far for Kim Kardashian and her baby daddy, Kanye West. First a surprise and critically acclaimed performance at the MTV Video Music Awards. Next, they announced that the whole family would be embarking on a North American Tour to support Kanye’s album Yeezus, followed by yet another surprise performance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

Kanye next made headlines when he left Kim in L.A. — she was filming Keeping Up With the Kardashians season 9 – to attend New York Fashion Week where he went on an expletive filled rant at an album release party that quickly went viral. But the new family was back together as they toured their under-construction Bel Air mansion.

So what is the latest drama surrounding the controversial rapper. It all stems from July, 19, when he attacked a photographer — who dared to speak to him — at Los Angeles International Airport. The photog quickly hired lawyer, Gloria Allred and filed a lawsuit. Originally, the L.A. County District Attorney, chose not to press charges, saying there was a lack of “significant injury”. But yesterday, the L.A. City Attorney’s office chose to press Mr. West with misdemeanor criminal battery and attempted grand theft. The grand theft is in reference to the camera that the photog was using at the time. If convicted, he could face up to one year in jail.

Yesterday was not a good day for the Kardashian sisters’ men — Lamar Odom was also formally charged with DUI from his arrest on August, 31. Scott Disick better watch his back and stay out of trouble!

Do you think Kanye should have been charged for the crime? Or are the paparazzi too aggressive? Comment below and let us know.
