Police called to the scene at LAX as Kanye West tussles with photogs
Earlier today (Friday) police had to intervene when rapper Kanye West got into an argument with paparazzi at Los angeles International Airport. Apparently an argument erupted between West and a reporter at the popular airport (a notorious spot for photographers to wait for celebs as they board flights or return from locations).
It was LAX police Sergeant Steve Savala that stated several witnesses are being questioned regarding the incident. This all happened earlier this afternoon, an official report for the investigation won’t be released until detectives have time to speak to everyones. It was TMZ, who frequent the airport for the same reasons, that posted a video Friday of the alleged incident. In the video you can see West surrounded by cameras as he attempts to make his way to a white Mercedes Benz that is waiting for the actor at the curb.
West states that the photographers are trying to provoke him into doing something, just before he decides to go after one of the paparazzi and attempts to grab the camera out of his hands. It is at this time a police officer appears and West is escorted away from the scene.
