More details are emerging from this morning's arrest of Kanye West following a confrontation with cameramen at Los Angeles International Airport.

Tim Mihalsky was at LAX this morning picking up his dad from the airport when he witnessed a scuffle outside the American Airlines security check-in at Terminal 4.

West was in the middle of the madness.

"I heard all this noise and yelling and I was like, 'What's going on?' Security and cops were running over to this fight. The commotion was going on for a couple minutes. I heard something slam on the floor and it was kind of crazy," Mihalsky tells E! News.

"It happened so quick I didn't know what was going on. And because of all the weird things that have happened at airports, and it being Sept. 11, I didn't want to get too close to it all. But I saw Kanye in the scuffle. There were like at least 10 people surrounding him in the chaos. It was just pure chaos."

The L.A. college student hightailed it out of the area before seeing West get detained for allegedly destroying a $10,000 videocam.

The 31-year-old rapper and an unidentifed bodyguard were arrested at 7:51 a.m. They remain in police custody.
