And things just keep getting worse for Kanye West. Hours after he beat up a paparazzi at LAX, the police have named Kanye a felony suspect for attempted robbery.
Why robbery and not battery? Well, because of the seriousness of the situation, the cops are trying to book him under the more serious charge. Kanye also did beat up the pap and try to grab his camera, so technically, it is an attempted robbery.
The victim definitely wants to press charges against Kanye, and he certainly has the right to. Sources tell TMZ that the victim did suffer injuries in the attack, when he was pushed to the ground, and then punched.
The victim is currently in the hospital, although the exact condition he’s in is not clear. Last we heard, Kanye was still missing but based on how fast the police are able to process the charges, that probably won’t last long.
There are a lot of people who are trying to support Kanye in this mess, which I find ridiculous. No matter how famous someone is or how annoying the paparazzi are, there is absolutely no excuse for physically assaulting another person unless it’s in self defense. And based on video evidence and what we know, Kanye made the first move – all because the paparazzi wouldn’t stop asking him questions.
Do you guys think Kanye should get booked for attempted robbery, or attempted battery? For what it’s worth, it looks like the cops are trying to book him under a mere technicality for the robbery charge, but it’s about time he learned his lesson. Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
