Kanye West - Kanye West to face felony charges?

Kanye West could face felony charges for his alleged attack on a photographer at LAX.

The 36-year-old rapper is said to have flipped out at an ''aggressive'' paparazzo at Los Angeles International Airport on Friday (19.07.13), leaving him with undetermined injuries and the victim wants to press charges.

According to TMZ: ''Police will refer the case to the D.A.[District Attorney] as a felony attempted robbery and not a battery case. The routine is to go after the suspect for the most serious charge.''

The photographer continued to ask Kanye questions after he told him not to and Kanye is said to have attempted to punch the man, who then fell to the ground,

Samir Chantre, a Brazilian jiujitsu instructor who was returning from a flight from Brazil at the time, witnessed the incident and explained: ''Five photographers started shooting pictures of him and one of them was over the microphone and was saying stuff to him.

''[Kanye] seemed like he was getting offended.''

Mr. Chantre added the rapper ran after one of the photographers and the two were pulled apart by onlookers.

It has been revealed the photographer, who is called Dano, is the same man who Britney Spears attacked with an umbrella in 2007.
