Kanye West has left the building.

Nearly four hours after his candid-camera airport bust, the hip-hop star has been released from police custody on $20,000 bail.

According to his booking sheet, West was released from the Los Angeles Police Department's Pacific Division station in Culver City at 12:53 p.m.

The 31-year-old Grammy winner and road manager Don Crowley were booked with felony vandalism after smashing a TMZ shooter's video camera at LAX in a scene an eyewitness described to E! News as "pure chaos."

There has been no comment yet from the West camp.

Pending an investigation, the Los Angeles District Attorney's Office will decide whether to charge the men. For now, West is tentatively due in court Oct. 2.

It's unclear whether West and Crowley are returning to the scene of the alleged crime—the duo was supposed to board an American Airlines flight to Honolulu when the incident went down.
