*Uh oh, bad news for Kanye West.

He’s been charged with criminal battery and attempted grand theft for allegedly attacking a paparazzo at LAX on July 19 (see photo above).

You remember the story when Ye went left on a pap who dared to speak with him as he left the airport. The photographer went to the hospital and then filed a lawsuit.

TMZ says the photog hired Gloria Allred, who has said the attack left her client badly injured.

Just days before the attack Kanye issued multiple warnings NOT to speak to him.

If convicted of both misdemeanors charges, West would face a maximum of 1 year in jail.

His arraignment is scheduled for October 10th.
