Kanye West was facing up to a year in jail on charges of misdemeanor battery and attempted grand theft in connection to his scuffle with photographer Daniel Ramos at LAX on July 19, but avoided a serious sentence. His attorney, Blair Berk, appeared in court today to receive the sentence, which stipulates that West stay 10 yards away from Ramos at all times, something which he will certainly be more than happy to do. The judge apparently “scoffed” at the prosecutor’s request that West agree to attend anger management classes as a condition of bail.

In much more interesting related news, the rapper recently announced a tour with Kendrick Lamar and gave one of the most engaging, passionate interviews ever to Zane Lowe on BBC Radio 1.
