Kanye West Avoids Felony Charges for Altercation with Paparazzo

He's been known to lash out at paparazzi, but Kanye West got a break on Friday (August 16) as the district attorney's office declined to prosecute him for a recent scuffle.

With bigger fish to fry, prosecutors say there were no significant injuries from the altercation, no stolen property, and little to no damage to the equipment.

Though the L.A. D.A. office may have given him a pass, the "New Slaves" rapper may still face misdemeanor charges from the city attorney.

Back on July 19th, the new papa to baby North West turned on a photographer who followed him through LAX Airport.
