Kanye West Arrested In England

November 14, 2008

Kanye West was reportedly arrested and released early this morning after an alleged incident involving a photographer outside a nightclub in England. West was arrested shortly after getting into an altercation with a paparazzo outside the Tup Tup club in Newcastle.

Via TMZ:

The person alleging the assault made the same claim against a famous British soccer player around a month ago -- but the charges were ruled to be unfounded in that case as well.

UPDATE: TMZ just spoke with the photog -- who claims Kanye did, in fact, smash his face in around 2AM London time.

According to the snapper, it all went down when Kanye was leaving the club with 4 girls, upset that he was being captured on film. After getting angry, Kanye allegedly got violent -- shoving the camera into the snappers face, causing a cut on his nose.

After a short investigation, West was released from police custody without charges.

What a badass.
