Kanye West and his road manager have avoided felony charges for their involvement in a scuffle with paparazzi at a Los Angeles airport.

 

      Los Angeles County District Attorney’s spokeswoman Sandi Gibbons says prosecutors handed the case down to city attorneys, who’ll decide whether or not to charge him with a misdemeanor, reports the Associated Press. No reason was given as to why prosecutors decided against the felony charges.

 

      The artist was arrested on Sept. 11 for suspicion of felony vandalism after he tussled with a photographer at L.A.X. and broke his camera flash on the floor. West’s road manager, Don Crowley, was also arrested on suspicion he broke the photographer’s camera, as well as video equipment belonging to TMZ.com.

 

       City Attorney spokesman Frank Mateljan says a decision on a lesser charge isn’t expected until next week.
