Details of Kanye's arrest at LAX

so here's a description from access hollywood on the events that transpired this morning

LOS ANGELES, Calif. --
Kanye West and his bodyguard, Don Crowley, were arrested at LAX this morning, the LAX Police Department has confirmed to Access Hollywood, which was the first news outlet to break the news online today.

The incident took place at 7:51 AM this morning at the entrance to the security checkpoint for American Airlines at Terminal 4. The two were en route to Honolulu at the time.

According to an eyewitness on the scene who spoke with Access, the incident began when Kanye approached a camera that was being aimed at him by a photographer.

NY Mag also made an interesting point and also what I found the most parciluar about the whole fiasco "who's updating Ye's blog"

According to TMZ, Kanye West was just arrested at LAX for "felony vandalism" (he and a bodyguard allegedly smashed the cameras of a pair of paparazzi). Apparently his ghost blogger didn't get the message, though, because posts on his Website went up at 10:45 and 10:55, which would've been approximately the same time he was purportedly smashing cameras and (presumably) being handcuffed. So, either someone else is updating his blog or Kanye's even more talented than we thought!

I'm a little disappointed I thought he actually made the entries, even though I always asked myself. How does he have the time?
