Kanye West Arrested at LAX

Kanye West is flexing that bad attitude muscle again --- and, this time, it's gotten him in big trouble.

The rapper was arrested at Los Angeles International Airport Thursday morning after allegedly smashing a photographer's camera.

"Mr. West was arrested at 7:51 a.m. outside the passenger screening area by airport police on charges of vandalism," a spokesman for LAX told People.com. "Initial reports say this incident involved a paparazzo and a camera valued at more than $10,000."

"In addition, Mr. West's [road manager] was arrested for vandalism and battery," the rep said. "Several witnesses are being interviewed by police. West and his bodyguard are being transported to an LAPD station where they're expected to be booked." 

In addition, a videographer for TMZ.com who was a witness said that once Kanye figured out he was being photographed, he "rushed the photog and grabbed his camera...threw it to the ground, breaking it into pieces."

Then Kanye's road manager approached the TMZ videographer and "grabbed [his] camera, ripped off the mic and viewfinder and smashed it to the ground."

TMZ has video of the incident -- which might be a little problem for Kanye.
