West won’t fight charge on battery

Kanye West has pleaded no contest to misdemeanor battery against a photographer at Los Angeles International Airport last year in a special plea in which he maintains his innocence.

West, who did not attend the court hearing Monday, was sentenced to two years of probation, 24 anger management sessions and 250 hours of community service.

Photographer Daniel Ramos claimed West punched him in an unprovoked attack in July and wrestled his camera to the ground during the scuffle.

Brown gets month

Chris Brown will spend another month in jail after a judge said Monday he was told the singer made troubling comments in rehab about being good at using guns and knives.

Brown, 24, was arrested Friday after he was dismissed from a Malibu, Calif., facility where he was receiving treatment for anger management, substance abuse and bipolar disorder.

Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlin said Brown made the comment when he was asked to reflect on things he excelled at.
