West won't face felony charge in airport incident

LOS ANGELES (AP) - September 26, 2008 Los Angeles County District Attorney's spokeswoman Sandi Gibbons says prosecutors referred the case to city attorneys, who will decide whether to charge West with a misdemeanor.

West was arrested Sept. 11 at Los Angeles International Airport on suspicion of felony vandalism after he was captured on video struggling with a paparazzo and breaking a flash on the floor.

City Attorney spokesman Frank Mateljan says a decision on a lesser charge isn't expected until next week.

West's road manager was also arrested on suspicion he broke the photographer's camera and one belonging to a TMZ videographer.
