... and out in 49 minutes

Kanye West spent a grand total of 49 minutes in police custody on Thursday. According to TMZ, West showed up at the LAPD station in Hollywood at 4:30 p.m. to get his mugshot taken and get fingerprinted, and was out in less than an hour.

Sorry, the LAPD does not release mugshots. Check out these instead.

The rapper was required to get booked as part of his recent no contest plea deal to misdemeanor battery against a photographer at LAX airport.

Earlier this month, West accepted two years of probation, 24 anger management therapy sessions and 250 hours of community service -- but gets to maintain his innocence.

West was charged with misdemeanor counts of battery and grand theft after an altercation at LAX with photographer Daniel Ramos in July. Ramos claimed West punched him in an unprovoked attack and wrestled his camera to the ground during the scuffle.
