Kanye West LAX Assault Case Comes To A Close — Tha Wire [VIDEO]

The Kanye West assault case involving an L.A. photographer at LAX has come to a close. Though the rapper will avoid jail, the judge over the case made sure he’ll pay in other ways, including from his bank account.

Kanye West wasn’t present in court, but his attorney entered a no contest plea for his client.  The plea was to a misdemeanor battery, in a special plea that will basically allow the rapper to maintain his innocence.

The Associated Press reports, Judge Alan Rubin gave the rapper two years probation and ordered him to perform 250 hours of community service.  On top of that, Kanye will have to attend 24 anger management sessions and pay restitution to the so-called victim, Daniel Ramos.

Kanye roughed the Ramos up last summer at LAX  after the photographer followed him and fired insults at him.  When the rapper had enough, he charged Ramas and a scuffled for his camera occurred when he wouldn’t leave Kanye alone.  Ramos claims he was punched in the face during their tussle and in court demanded Kanye go to jail saying, “If I did what he did to me, I’d be behind bars.  I was doing my job and he broke the law.”

The Hollywood Reporter revealed recently that initially the NFL filed $1.5 million arbitration against M.I.A. for “breaching her performance contract and tarnishing its goodwill and reputation.

Meanwhile the rapper/singer responded the the lawsuit saying, “The claim for restitution lacks any basis in law, fact, or logic.” The outspoken performer then took to Twitter to air out her anger over the new charges and included a screenshot of what appeared to be paperwork from the NFL.  Here’s a peep at her account.
