Kanye West must have been feeling a little déjà vu last night.

The rapper was arrested for supposedly getting into a scuffle with a photog, only to be sent on his way without charges — just like he was in L.A. a couple of months back.

According to TMZ.com, the Stronger star was coming out of a night club in Newcastle, England, early this morning with four girls when the pap started snapping.

The photog claims that Kayne grabbed the camera and jammed it into his face, cutting his nose.

The cops arrested Kanye at his hotel, but released him after a "short investigation," according to the site.

It seems that none of this is new to either of the parties involved.

Apparently the photog involved had made similar claims against a British soccer star a few months earlier.

And Kanye himself was arrested for allegedly fighting with a pap at LAX on Sept. 11, but no felony charges were ever filed.


UPDATE: TMZ has just posted pictures of the photog involved showing a cut on his nose that he claims was made when Kayne hit him with the camera. It is, you might say, less than life threatening. In fact, putting a Band Aid on it would be somewhat over-dramatic.
