Kanye West Paparazzi Attack 2013: APC Designer and 'Yeezus' Rapper Faces Felony, Controversy After Incident at LAX Airport [PHOTOS, VIDEO]

Kanye West  is a felony suspect after attacking a photographer in an alleged attempted robbery at LA's LAX Airport on Friday, according to TMZ.

The APC Designer, 36, assaulted the shutterbug and tried to steal his camera, law enforcement sources told the celebrity news site. The male victim was taken to a nearby hospital, where his condition is unknown at this time.

What we do also know is that the victim is pressing charges against the "Yeezus" rapper. TMZ said cops interviewed the photog and determined that he did suffer injuries during the attack.

As a result, the police department will refer the case to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office. And this action could mean possible prosecution for North West's famous dad.

According to Perez Hilton, the police are not considering the charge as a battery.

But the charge and incident sets a bad tone for the new father, "Hopefully he learns a lesson here," Hilton reported, "and can be a better role model to young North [West] in the future!"

This is not the first time that West has had a scuffle with shutterbugs, for the rapper also lashed out and lunged at a photographer at LAX recently, according to Hollywood Life.

The photographer approached the rapper, who was talking on his cell phone. West got very angry, "I don't want to hear paparazzi talk to me or anyone I know."

The shutterbug then followed West, who lunged at him.
