According to TMZ, Chicago rapper Kanye West won’t face charges for the phone snatch and toss incident that took place in January. The rapper-turned-designer reportedly snatched a photographer’s phone and threw it into the street after confronting her while she was filming him from her car.
The confrontation came as West, 45, was reportedly in Los Angeles to visit his son North and daughter Saint at a basketball game. As he was leaving, the woman argued that she could film him because he’s a celebrity and he cut her off by grabbing her phone from her hand and throwing it in the street.
However, in Ventura County District Attorney’s Office documents obtained by TMZ, it was revealed that West’s involvement in the tossing incident caused minimal damage to the phone. In fact, it only affected the $30 case around it. Documents also state that the woman declined to press charges against West.
