Yesterday, Kanye West got into a physical altercation with a photographer shortly after landing at LAX. Photos of the incident indicate that there were about five paparazzi surrounding West when the rapper began to get physical with one cameraman. A source spoke out stating  Kanye went after the videographer and attempted to take his camera but when the pap wouldn’t let go West took him to the ground, where the pap hurt his hip. The photographer got up and walked away from the scene before realizing his hip was injured. He received medical attention at LAX and was transported to a nearby hospital via ambulance. LAX police who were called to the scene issued the following statement; “Today at approximately 2:00 p.m., at the Tom Bradley International Terminal (on the arrival level curbside), Los Angeles Airport Police officers were flagged down by a citizen (photographer) who alleged that he was taking pictures of an individual when he was battered by the subject. The alleged suspect was not at the location nor was he observed by officers at the scene.” The statement added, “LAFD was notified, responded to the location and transported the victim to a local hospital for medical attention. A police report was taken by the Los Angeles Police Department and the investigation is ongoing.”
