Kanye West 'faces up to a year in prison'

He was seen on camera earlier this year wrestling a paparazzo to the floor.

And now Kanye West could be facing up to a year in prison after being charged with criminal battery and attempted grand theft auto, according to TMZ.

The 36-year-old rapper, who has just welcomed his first child, North West, with Kim Kardashian, was photographed allegedly attacking photographer Daniel Ramos at Los Angeles International Airport in July.

Daniel filed a lawsuit against the rapper last month which claimed that "without warning or provocation", Kanye "suddenly attacked, punching and attempting to wrestle the camera from" the photographer’s hands after asking to talk with the star.

According to the site, Kanye could now face up to a year behind bars if found guilty with the star set to be arraigned on October 10.


The LA County District Attorney’s Office previously stated that the pap was discharged from hospital with a contusion and muscle strain.

However, the D.A. was not going to file felony charges against Kanye as there was no ‘significant injury’.


At the time of the incident, Daniel said: “I am speaking out today because I don't want what happened to me to ever happen to anyone else."

This is not however the first time that the photographer has been caught up in a scuffle with a high profile name.

Back in 2007, Daniel was infamously attacked by Britney Spears with an umbrella.
