Kanye West was reportedly arrested and released early Friday morning (November 14) after an alleged incident involving a photographer outside a nightclub in England. According to, West was arrested shortly after getting into a scuffle with a paparazzo outside the Tup Tup club in Newcastle.

West, 31, was reportedly arrested at a hotel in nearby Gateshead and then released. While a police spokesperson declined to name the person involved (as is the custom in England) when reached for comment by MTV News on Friday morning, he did confirm that a 31-year-old man was "released with no further action after an alleged incident at the Tup Tup nightclub."

A rep for West had no comment on the incident when reached by MTV News Friday morning.

The London Paper blog reported that the photographer claimed he suffered a cut face and bruising after West pushed his camera into his face and shouted, "Get the f---ing camera off him." According to TMZ, the photographer had previously made similar claims against a British soccer player, but those charges were also dropped.
