A spokesman for the L.A. Attorney’s Office confirmed today that Kanye West¬†has been charged with misdemeanour battery and attempted grand theft in connection to his scuffle with photographer Daniel Ramos at LAX on July 19. Each charge carries a maximum penalty of six months each, meaning that West faces up to a year in prison if convicted on both counts.

You can watch footage of the incident, during which Ramos¬†claims to have injured his right hip as Kanye punched him and wrestled him to the ground, here. Kanye West’s arraignment is scheduled for October 10, a mere nine days before his tour with Kendrick Lamar starts, so if you’ve bought tickets already (or just think that a one-year sentence for such a minor altercation is ridiculous), fingers crossed that he isn’t convicted.
