Law enforcement told the outlet that Ye allegedly shoved and then punched a male fan he had been arguing with, knocking him to the ground. The man was said to have asked him for an autograph.

The billionaire rapper is now under investigation for misdemeanor or "simple" battery — defined as the willful or unlawful use of force or violence on another person. Simple battery is often punished by a fine but can potentially warrant a max sentence of six months in jail.
