Kanye Pleads Not Guilty to Battery Charges

Yesterday we got news that Jim Jones pled not guilty to his charges of beating up someone. Today, we learn that Krazy Kanye has pled not guilty to battery charges.

Kanye's attorney Blair Berk snuck in under the radar and appeared on his behalf this past Friday, according to Radaronline. A pre-trial hearing has been set for July 15th.

Kanye and his manager are accused of smashing a photographer's camera at LAX Sept. 11, 2008.

L.A. city prosecutors charged Kanye with misdemeanor battery, grand theft and vandalism. He faces 2 1/2 years in jail if convicted.

However, jail-time is highly unlikely. [watch the beatdown video after the jump]
