Kanye West In and Out of Police Custody In 49 Minutes

Posted: 2014-03-30T01:03:31Z

Kanye West slinked into a police station for less than an hour Thursday ... when no one was looking.


Kanye was booked in connection with his misdemeanor battery case ... for beating on a photog at LAX.  He pled no contest earlier this month and was required to turn himself in for booking.


So Kanye -- and his crafty lawyer -- chose yesterday at 4:30 PM.  He went to the Hollywood LAPD station and got his mug shot taken and then got fingerprinted.  It took a grand total of 49 minutes and he was out.


Kanye has to keep his nose clean for 2 years and also has to attend 24 private therapy sessions for anger management.
