Kanye West investigated for battery after incident with teenager

The rapper allegedly punched an 18-year-old after the teen allegedly launched into a diatribe of racial slurs and unsavory insults directed at his fiancee, Kim Kardashian. "It was a little bit of an incredible reaction but probably warranted," one witness said. West, gone by the time the authorities arrived, faces a misdemeanor if charged. The only plus about the whole altercation is that it happened at a chiropractor's office.
