Kanye West's latest paparazzi problem refuses to fade away. While 'Ye's hatred for celebrity-stalking photographers are part of his image at this point, the cameraman he scuffled with at LAX in July refuses to be another notch on the rapper's belt and announced his plans to sue Kanye on Wednesday.

Even though the L.A. district attorney's office dismissed felony charges against West over the alleged attack, photographer Daniel Ramos is enlisting high-profile attorney Gloria Allred to sue the rapper over the attack that allegedly left him on crutches.

Ramos is suing West for assault, battery, negligence and violation of his civil rights. Although there is video of West grappling with the photographer, his rep claims Kanye simply wanted to stop Ramos from taking a picture.

But there's more to it than that, according to the plaintiff. "I told him twice, 'I don't want to fight you,'" Ramos said. "However, he attacked me anyway."

After West wrestled him to the ground, Ramos was attended to at a nearby hospital and reportedly spent two weeks on crutches.
