Kanye West will face a misdemeanor battery and attempted grand theft charge for a paparazzi scuffle incident at LAX, the Los Angeles City Attorney’s office confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter.
The singer will be arraigned Oct. 10 at the LAX airport courthouse. The July 19 incident, captured on video, showed the Yeezus rapper confronting the videographer outside the Tom Bradley Terminal and appearing to take away a camera.
The videographer, Daniel Ramos, had announced a lawsuit in August through attorney Gloria Allred, who held a press conference on Aug. 21.
A complaint filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on behalf of Ramos said he “sustained injuries to his right hip, as well as accompanying pain and emotional distress.”
The filing also stated that the Ramos “was prevented from attending to his usual occupation as a photographer and has suffered, and will suffer, lost earnings.”
The L.A. District Attorney’s office had stated in August that it declined to file a felony charge against West.
TMZ first reported the news of the misdemeanor battery charge.
