Police say they have arrested singer Kanye West at Los Angeles International Airport on suspicion of vandalism after an altercation with a photographer.

An airport spokesman says police also arrested West's bodyguard shortly before 8 a.m. on Thursday.

Airport spokesman Marshall Lowe says early reports are that West got into an altercation with a commercial photographer, and a camera valued at more than $10,000 was broken.

The incident happened before West and his bodyguard, who was not identified, went into a security checkpoint at the airport.

Lowe says police are continuing to interview witnesses and West may be booked later Thursday.

A call to West's publicist in New York was not immediately returned.
