Kanye West denies causing this bit of turbulence.
The hip-hop star pleaded not guilty last week to charges of battery, grand theft and vandalism stemming from his arrest for tangling with a persistent paparazzo at Los Angeles International Airport last September.
West and his business manager, Don Crawley, are accused of smashing a shutterbug's $10,000 video camera when he and a colleague tried to get shots of the duo boarding a flight for Hawaii.
Because the 808s & Heartbreak rapper is facing misdemeanor charges, attorney Blair Berk was able to appear on his behalf Friday, a few days before the scheduled arraignment, to enter his plea. She had no comment on the matter.
The next hearing in the case is set for July 15.
