LOS ANGELES — Kanye West’s arraignment on misdemeanor charges has been delayed until May. Lawyers for the rapper and his road manager were granted a delay to enter pleas until May 20 during a brief hearing Monday afternoon. West, who is not required to attend, was to be arraigned on three misdemeanor charges filed as result of a scuffle with a paparazzo at Los Angeles International Airport on Sept. 11. Video shot by celebrity gossip Web site TMZ showed West breaking a photographer’s flash. His manager is accused of breaking the paparazzo’s camera and TMZ’s video camera. West’s attorney, Blair Berk, told a court commissioner that Monday was the first time she had been allowed to review the police report and she is waiting for prosecutors to turn over any additional evidence. ______ Copyright 2009 Associated Press.
