In what feels like serious deja-vu, Kanye West was arrested earlier this morning for an alleged altercation with photographers. According to TMZ, the rapper/producer was arrested at a hotel in Gateshead, England for an alleged tussle with a photographer on his way out of the Tup Tup nightclub. West was later released after a short investigation.

The photographer claims that West left the club with four women and expressed that he did not want to be photographed once approached. He then allegedly shoved the camera in the photographers face cutting him on the nose.

This marks the second altercation between the performer and a photographer in the past few months. In September, West and his road manager/bodyguard Don Crowley got into an altercation with photographers at Los Angeles International Airport while waiting for a flight to Hawaii. The two were approached by a photographer and videographer and West requested not to be recorded. A short struggle ensued and both cameras were damaged.

West and Crowley were arrested on felony vandalism charges that were later dropped because the value of the damaged property wasn't high enough.
