Rob Kardashian has been charged with misdemeanor battery and petty theft because of a fight with a photographer in March. US Weekly reported that Kardashian pleaded not guilty to the charges in court on Wednesday May 8. The 26-year-old who has risen to reality fame from the tv show "Keeping Up With The Kardashians," was accused of hitting a paparazzo and then taking her digital media card.
"The alleged altercation occurred in March, when photographer Kassandra Perez had been following Kardashian from a West Hollywood gym to a parking garage. She has accused the star of striking her in the face, grabbing her camera and removing the media card," reported US Weekly.
Prosecutors asked that bail be set at $21,000 but it is reported that Judge Marshal Revel let Kardashian go without bail.
The Los Angeles Times reported that Kardashian had been sued already in civil court because of the incidence. The Huffington Post reported that Viak claims Kardashian "intentionally, willfully, wantonly and maliciously ran" at her after she took photos of him without a shirt on in a public parking lot outside a gym.
The photographer Kassandra Perez, whose real name is Andra Viak said that she suffered injuries on her arm and chest and that her memory card was worth approximately $30,000.
"According to April 30 court documents obtained by E! News. The card contained 1,200 pictures of celebs and about 300 freelance photos, the docs stated," reported The LA Times.
According to TMZ, Kardashian said that he got angry with the photographer because she had trespassed onto private property in order to take the photos of him.
TMZ reported that Kardashian was represented on Wednesday with Robert Shapiro who was one of the attorneys on the O.J. Simpson murder case, which Kardashian's late father also worked on.
