Kanye On Lockdown, Arrested For Attacking Camera Dudes

Kanye West has been detained and questioned on charges of felony vandalism by LAPD after he lost it on some photogs at LAX this morning. TMZ.com was on the scene obviously:

A still photographer was trying to take pics of Kanye at the American Airlines terminal. According to our guy on the scene, Kanye allegedly confronted the photog and smashed his camera to the ground.

Our photog then began videotaping the scene when Kanye’s assistant grabbed our camera — a struggle ensued and the assistant threw the video camera to the ground, breaking it.

A followup post adds more color:

The cops asked [TMZ cameraman] Erik if he videotaped the incident and Erik said he had. That’s when Kanye lunged toward him and said, “Give me the fu***ng videotape.” Cops had to restrain Kanye as he tried coming at Erik.

TMZ promises to post the video soon, which someone will immediately set to “Love Lockdown” and upload to YouTube. (UPDATE: Here it is.)
