Posted by Rachel Leigh email

LOS ANGELES (TMZ) - Kanye West has just been charged with three criminal misdemeanors -- vandalism, battery, and grand theft -- in connection with the camera-smashing incident at LAX.

The L.A. City Attorney has charged Don Crowley with the crimes -- two counts of vandalism, two counts of battery and two counts of grand theft. TMZ happened to catch the incident on tape.

In fact, Kanye broke a TMZ camera light as we were shooting.

Crowley is charged with breaking both the TMZ camera and the still camera. Kanye is charged with breaking the flash accessory to the still camera.

The incident occurred last September 11. Both men are scheduled to be arraigned on April 14.

Kanye could get up to two and a half years in jail if convicted on all counts. Crowley could get five years.
