The rapper was on Friday charged with criminal battery and attempted grand theft after he tried to seize the photog’s camera during the scuffle.
The photographer had hired a lawyer after the incident, claiming that he suffered bad injuries during the attack. his is however, doubtful, judging from the video that was shot on the scene.
Nevertheless, Kanye faces up to 1 year in jail if convicted.
An earlier report suggested that Kanye West won’t be prosecuted because of lack of hard proof and his willingness to part with cash to make the case go away. Well, seems that didn’t work out.
He will be arraigned on October 10.
