Artist taken by police on suspicion of vandalism
Police say they have arrested Kanye West at Los Angeles International Airport on suspicion of vandalism after an altercation with a photographer.
An airport spokesman says police also arrested West’s bodyguard shortly before 8 a.m. on Thursday.
Airport spokesman Marshall Lowe says early reports are that West got into an altercation with a commercial photographer and a camera valued at more than $10,000 was broken.
The incident happened before West and his manager, who was not identified, cleared a security screening at the airport.
Lowe says police are continuing to interview witnesses and West may be booked later this morning.
