Charges could be filed against Ye, formerly Kanye West, after an alleged attack on a fan in Los Angeles. The LAPD claims on January 13, the rapper punched a man approaching him for a photo. A video also taken the night of the attack shows a man splayed on the ground as West shouts at members of his work staff. According to TMZ, the man suffered a broken nose.

The attack happened at approximately 3 A.M. in downtown Los Angeles outside the Soho Warehouse. Ye showed up at the club with now ex-girlfriend, actress Julia Fox. He left the club with several bodyguards and staff, after which the attack took place.

Law enforcement is currently investigating the attack. Once their investigation is complete, they will send their evidence to the L.A. City Attorney’s Office. This will determine whether Ye will be charged with criminal battery. Officers say they took witness statements and reviewed a video of the incident, which could be enough to file charges.

Ye’s Charging History In The Spotlight

This isn’t the first time the rapper has garnered this press. Ye consistently trends across social media platforms, especially after his unsuccessful bid for the United States presidency. The Donda rapper has been making headlines following his impending divorce from socialite Kim Kardashian. West directed numerous rants at celebrities like rapper Kid Cudi and SNL star Pete Davidson in the past few weeks. Davidson, who is dating Kim Kardashian, allegedly sent West a text to make peace. However, Ye was not open to this gesture.

With the LAPD’s investigation is coming to a close, the rapper might have legal issues to focus on. This is another obstacle on a long list of the interpersonal problems he’s currently dealing with.
