Kanye West under investigation for allegedly assaulting fan

If found guilty, the rapper would be made to face a jail sentence of six months.

For allegedly assaulting a fan who asked for his autograph, American rapper and producer, Kanye West, has been placed under investigation.

In the early hours of Thursday, the 44-year-old rapper reportedly got into an argument with a fan, according to Fox 11.

Apparently, the argument turned physical when the fan approached West who was sitting in his SUV outside a private hotel.

West was said to have punched the fan who hit the ground.


A spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed that the rapper was under investigation for misdemeanor battery.

If found guilty, the rapper would be made to face a jail sentence of six months.

It was reported that West has gone out with his girlfriend, Julia Fox, and a variety of celebrities, including Evan Ross, Madonna and Antonio Brown, at restaurant-club Delilah on Wednesday night before the incident.

Away from that, The armorer on the set of “Rust” has sued the film’s ammunition supplier, accusing him of leaving real bullets among the dummy cartridges, resulting in the fatal shooting of a cinematographer.

Hannah Gutierrez-Reed was the armorer in charge of weapons on the Western movie set in New Mexico, where actor Alec Baldwin fatally shot Halyna Hutchins in October after being told his firearm was safe.

Film industry safety rules completely prohibit live ammunition on sets, precisely to avoid such an accident.

In her civil suit filed Wednesday in a New Mexico court, Gutierrez-Reed accused supplier Seth Kenney of providing the production of “Rust” with ammunition that was “misrepresented as only dummy ammunition,” meaning it had no gunpowder and was inert, “when it contained both dummy and live ammunition.”

According to the case documents, Gutierrez-Reed said police had discovered seven bullets suspected of being live after the tragedy.

They were distributed among a box of cartridges, a cart with other ammunition and cartridge belts intended for the actors to use as accessories.
