The US rap superstar Kanye West was arrested on suspicion of assault after a scuffle at a nightclub following a concert reported on Friday night. Kanye West, the 31 year old, accused of assaulting a paparazzo.
The incident occurred after involving a photographer outside the Tup Tup Palace bar in Newcastle, northern England when he was leaving the Tup Tup club and H later he was arrested at a hotel in Gateshead.
Later the charges were dropped because police found out that the photographer who accused West of assault had also claimed a famous soccer player slugged him. Those charges were proved to be untrue.
It was West’s second time in the last two months that West has gotten into it with the pappers. The first time happened in September at Los Angeles International Airport after he was filmed struggling with a paparazzo. In September,it turned physical, with the rapper and his bodyguard smashing camera equipment. West was arrested but not charged.
