AP — A court commissioner on Friday dismissed criminal charges against Kanye West and his road manager stemming from their scuffle with photographers last year.

Misdemeanor charges were filed after West and his manager were arrested on Sept. 11, 2008, after an altercation with two photographers at Los Angeles International Airport. The struggle was recorded and broadcast by celebrity Web site TMZ.

This is actually bad news for Kanye. The only chance he had at rebuilding his career, was a jail stint to increase his street cred. Sure it is hard to act gangster with a Louis Vuitton backpack on, but it was his only hope.

Here is an AP report on the incident. Notice they subtly use the Love Lockdown pun as well.
