Kanye West to Serve 24 Months Probation, 24 Anger Management Classes
March 17, 2014
While maintaining his innocence, Kanye West pleaded no contest Monday to misdemeanor battery against a photographer at Los Angeles International Airport.
West was sentenced to 24 months of probation, 24 anger management classes and 250 hours of community service.
Kanye had originally been charged with misdemeanor counts of battery and grand theft after a tussle at LAX with photographer Daniel Ramos in July.
Ramos stated that Kanye West punched him in an unprovoked attack and took his camera during the altercation.
Kanye West was also arrested in September 2008 after another fight with photographers at LAX, but the cases were dismissed after he completed anger management classes and agreed to pay the photographers for their broken cameras. So this is the 2nd round of anger management for Kanye.
