The Donda rapper was not arrested, KABC reports

The incident occurred at about 3 a.m. at South Santa Fe Avenue and Bay Street in downtown Los Angeles, outside of Soho Warehouse, a members-only club, according to the LAPD.

TMZ reported that Ye is being investigated for an alleged misdemeanor battery, which carries a maximum jail sentence of six months. The website claims that he allegedly punched a man following an argument. A video shows West yelling, “Did y’all say that or not? Did y’all say that or not? Cuz that’s what happened right f****** now.”

TMZ also reports that Kanye was at Delilah nightclub in West Hollywood with actress Julia Fox Wednesday night and eventually left while she remained at the club.
