Los Angeles County prosecutors say they have declined to file felony charges against Kanye West for an incident in which a paparazzo’s camera was broken.
Los Angeles County District Attorney’s spokeswoman Sandi Gibbons says prosecutors referred the case to city attorneys, who will decide whether to charge West with a misdemeanor.
West was arrested Sept. 11 at Los Angeles International Airport on suspicion of felony vandalism after he was captured on video struggling with a paparazzo and breaking a flash on the floor.
City Attorney spokesman Frank Mateljan says a decision on a lesser charge isn’t expected until next week.
West’s road manager was also arrested on suspicion he broke the photographer’s camera and one belonging to a TMZ videographer.
