West’s reportedly will NOT face charges for tossing a female photographer's phone
Ye will not face battery charges after January altercation in Los Angeles.
According to TMZ, the Ventura Co. District Attorney's Office revealed Wednesday that the cellphone had only suffered 'minor damage' to its $30 protective case.
The woman whose property was damaged then declined to press charges against Ye.
The police reported were called to the scene, provided with video evidence and later named Kanye as a suspect in a battery case.
The video, which was shared to social media, appeared to show West having a heated back-and-forth with the female photog before grabbing her cellphone from her and tossing it aside.
“Ya'll ain't gonna run up on me,” he told her as she continued to film him with her phone. After exchanging more words, the Chicago rapper-producer grabbed her phone and threw it out onto the street. Kanye then confronted another person and demanded that he turn off his camera. The man obliged him and put down the camera.
