Recording artist Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, is being investigated for a battery offense after he allegedly punched a fan who demanded a photo.
The alleged incident happened in downtown Los Angeles around 3 a.m. Thursday, according to the LAPD.
Video obtained by TMZ shows a man lying motionless on the ground as Ye walks away arguing with a woman.
From the video, it is unclear how the man ended up on the ground and at no time was Ye shown engaging in the act of assault.
TMZ added that Ye was leaving a late-night studio session at a warehouse in downtown Los Angeles when fans stopped him to ask for a photo. You refused and after an exchange of words the alleged battery happened.
Although the LAPD named Ye as a suspect, he was neither charged nor arrested.
