According to TMZ Kanye West might be facing some legal trouble. He was named a suspect in a battery investigation after a heated exchange with a photographer escalated to the point of Ye grabbing and throwing the woman’s phone.
Check out the video, Ye’s clearly upset — accusing the woman of following him — all the while she continues to record.
The woman exclaims, “You’re a celebrity!” but that’s enough for Ye, who grabs and throws the woman’s phone into the street.
He then hops into his SUV where his wife, Bianca Censori, is patiently waiting.

A law enforcement source tells us Kanye’s the named suspect in a battery investigation, deputies from the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department were called to the scene around 4:30 PM and were provided video evidence of the incident.
It’s currently unclear if the woman is a professional photographer or was just taking videos of Ye as a citizen.
We should note … the whole thing happened near a sports complex where North West had a scheduled basketball game.
Kim Kardashian also slammed the Pap for asking her about the alleged battery infront of her children.
According to Pagesix Kim Kardashian shut down a paparazzo who inquired about her ex-husband Kanye West’s alleged battery incident in front of her kids on Friday.
“Hey Kim, what do you think of Kanye hitting someone … [sic] the paparazzi’s phone?” the photographer can be heard asking in video obtained by Page Six.
“Do not talk to me about that in front of my kids,” the “Kardashians” star, 42, sternly responded, prompting the photographer to apologize to her.
During this exchange, a child can be heard shouting, “Please leave!”
Kardashian was attending her daughter North’s basketball game that night, and her son Saint was also present. It is unclear which child made the heartbreaking proclamation.
The protective mom of four then ensured her kids got in the silver SUV safely before she said goodbye to her sister Khloé Kardashian’s ex Tristan Thompson, who also attended the basketball game.
