Kanye West has pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor vandalism, battery and grand theft charges stemming from an Sept. 11, 2008 tussle with a paparazzi at a Los Angeles airport, People reports. West and his road manager, Don Crawley, who also pleaded not guilty, were arrested last fall after allegedly smashing a photographer’s camera while trying to make a flight to Honolulu. Their next hearing is set for July 15.
