Kanye Goes Plane Crazy
Word to the wise: Flying makes Kanye West cranky, especially when you're a paparazzo. On Thursday morning, Kanye and his entourage were about to board an American Airlines flight to Honolulu when they spotted a photographer snapping the rapper. Kanye rushed the paparazzo and flung his camera to the ground. A nearby TMZ cameraman claims he heard the photographer screaming for help, so he went over to film the fracas. Then Kanye's bodyguard smashed that camera, too. When the police arrived to break it up, things got really crazy. The TMZ cameraman alleges that Kanye lunged at him, screaming obscenities. Needless to say, Kanye got a little jail time-out this afternoon, after which he posted bail and got on a private plane to continue his vacation. Kanye and his bodyguard were booked on suspicion of felony vandalism for trashing 10K worth of camera equipment, and the bodyguard also faces possible battery charges.
