As Gossip Cop previously reported, the rapper went after the unidentified photographer as he was trying to make his way to a waiting car.
Video and photos from the scene show the pap peppering West with questions, as the music star accuses the photog of goading him into losing his cool — and then he does.
The victim was treated by medics on site, and later reportedly taken to the hospital with unknown injuries.
The incident is reportedly under investigation by the LAPD’s Robbery Homicide Unit, with police believing West was attempting to steal the paparazzo’s camera during the assault.
The photographer has already been interviewed by the cops, and wants to press charges against the musician, reportsspan style=”color: #000000;”>TMZ.
The case will eventually be sent to the district attorney’s office for possible prosecution.
