Charges dropped against Kanye West in paparazzi scuffle

Posted on

Criminal charges against rapper Kanye West and his road manager in connection with a scuffle with paparazzi last year have been dropped by a Los Angeles judge, according to the Associated Press. West and his manager were arrested last September following a fight with two photographers at Los Angeles International Airport. West’s lawyer, Blair Berk, argued that the the case against his client should be dismissed because the paparazzi and West had already reached civil settlements out of court. Berk also noted that West had completed 12 hours of anger management training following the altercation. In exchange for the charges being dropped, West was ordered to complete 50 hours of community service.
