Kanye West is facing an alleged criminal battery charge stemming from an altercation in Los Angeles.

According to a report from Los Angeles’ Fox 11 on Tuesday (Jan. 13), Ye was involved in an argument that turned into a physical altercation around 3 a.m. this morning near Soho Wearhouse in downtown L.A. Apparently, a fan saw Kanye sitting in his car outside of the establishment and approached the rapper for an autograph.

The unnamed fan alleges that words were exchanged between himself and Ye, who jumped out of his car and called the fan some expletives that were not disclosed in the news report. Yeezy then punched the fan, knocking him to the ground.

Kanye then left the scene.

Fox 11 says that police were called and a police report was filed regarding the incident, which is currently under investigation.

The news report notes that the battery is considered a misdemeanor, so had Ye stayed at the scene, he likely would not have been arrested. Fox 11’s news report can be seen below.

According to California’s legislative guidelines, misdemeanor battery is “punishable by a fine not exceeding two thousand dollars ($2,000), or by imprisonment in a county jail not exceeding six months, or by both that fine and imprisonment.”

In video obtained by TMZ, published this afternoon, the Donda rhymer is spotted walking to white SUV with two individuals. Moments later, he is seen scolding one of people he is with, yelling, “Did y’all say that or not? Did y’all say that or not? Cuz that’s what happened right fucking now.”

This footage appears to have been taken prior to the alleged battery incident.

XXL has reached out to a rep for Kanye West and the Los Angeles Police Department for comment.
