Kanye WestKanye West and the paparazzi just don't mix. The rapper was arrested early Friday morning (November 14) in England for an allegedly incident involving a photographer outside a nightclub.

British media report that West was detained shortly after getting into a scuffle with a paparazzo outside the Tup Tup club in Newcastle, northern England.

The 31-year-old rapper was arrested later near his hotel, but then later released. While police declined to release West's name, they did confirm that a 31-year-old man had been arrested on suspicion of assault after an incident at a nightclub, and later released without charge.

The London Paper blog reports that the photographer claims he suffered a cut face and bruising after West pushed his camera into his face and shouted, "Get the f***ing camera off him."

Kanye West's camp did not comment on the incident.
