Just days after gracing the cover of Vogue magazine, Kanye West turned himself in to the Los Angeles Police Department. TMZ reports that following a dispute with photographer Daniel Ramos, West was booked, fingerprinted, given a mugshot, and released within 49 minutes. Allegedly, Ramos refused to settle the case after West fought the camera out of Ramos' hands at Los Angeles International Airport.

On March 18, West was sentenced to 24 hours of anger management therapy sessions, 250 hours of community service, and two years probation, and according to CBS News, chose to turn himself in March 28.

This follows West's two notorious physical run-ins, the first in 2008 after he smashed two photographers' cameras also at LAX, and the second earlier this year in Beverly Hills where he allegedly followed and punched the perpetrator after racial epithets were directed towards him and fianceé Kim Kardashian.

West was ordered to stay away from Ramos, and paparazzi everywhere will hopefully stay away from Ye too after this altercation.
