A court commissioner dismissed all charges Friday against rapper Kanye West related to a confrontation with paparazzi last year at Los Angeles International Airport.

On Sept. 12, 2008, West and his road manager, Don Crowley, were arrested at LAX after the two men reportedly confronted a photographer and smashed his camera, authorities said.

The city attorney filed eight misdemeanor charges, including battery, grand theft and vandalism.

Court Commissioner Mark Zuckman dismissed the charges against both West and Crowley.
