Kanye West has pleaded not guilty to charges stemming from a physical confrontation with a paparazzo at Los Angeles International Airport earlier this year.

West's attorney, Blair Berk, entered the plea on the rapper's behalf Thursday in an L.A. court. West has been charged with battery and attempted grand theft after allegedly getting into an altercation with photographer Daniel Ramos outside LAX in July. Ramos claims West attacked him and grabbed his camera during the incident.
