Kanye West has pleaded not guilty to misdemeanour battery and attempted grand theft in a case filed over a scuffle with a celebrity photographer earlier this year.

Attorney Blair Berk entered the plea on the rapper’s behalf in a Los Angeles court.

West was charged with two misdemeanours in September over a July altercation with paparazzo Daniel Ramos at Los Angeles International Airport.

Prosecutors declined to file felony charges against West, but decided to pursue the misdemeanour charges. Each carries a penalty of up to six months in jail or a US $1,000 dollar fine.

Mr Ramos claims West punched him in an unprovoked attack and wrestled his camera to the ground on July 19.
