Ramos approached West as he was leaving the airport in July, antagonizing the G.O.O.D. Music leader about his previous run-ins with paps. West responded by trying to wrestle a camera out of Ramos' hands. The confrontation left Ramos requesting medical attention, something West has argued was a ploy to file a lawsuit.
West was slapped with misdemeanor criminal battery and attempted grand theft as a results, but claims self-defense. He maintains that his "safety was in immediate danger" because of Ramos, and reacted in a way that was "reasonable and necessary."
On the contrary, Ramos accuses West of causing him "great pain," and has filed a civil suit against the music star.
If convicted of the aforementioned misdemeanors, West could face up to a year behind bars.
