Kanye West Avoids Jail Time Following Fan Assault

In a formal statement about the alleged battery of a fan by the controversial rapper, Rob Wilcox, a spokesman for Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer, said “Regarding the incident involving Kanye West that took place January 13, 2022, after a thorough and careful review of all the evidence, our office is declining to file based on no reasonable likelihood of conviction,”

West, now 45, was investigated by Los Angeles Police concerning reports that he punched a male fan who approached him outside the members-only SoHo Warehouse in downtown Los Angeles.

A video published by purportedly shows West yelling at a member of his entourage after the incident, telling her to “get away” from him.

Had the case gone forward, the musician could’ve faced jail time if charged and convicted of misdemeanor battery as the superstar rapper/writer was previously sentenced to two years of probation, anger management classes and community service for his misdemeanor battery of a paparazzo at LAX Airport in July 2013.

The recently alleged battery coincided with the final weeks of West’s marriage to Kim Kardashian and his very public criticism of the beauty mogul and her then-boyfriend, Saturday Night Live star Pete Davidson.
