Kanye West

has had battery charges relating to a 2008 bust-up with photographers dropped after completing his court-ordered community service. The "Stronger" hitmaker and his manager, Don Crowley, were charged with vandalism, battery and grand theft after smashing camera equipment belonging to two snappers at Los Angeles International Airport on September 11, 2008.

In October 2009, a Los Angeles judge agreed to have the case dismissed on the condition that West and Crowley each performed 50 hours of community service. The pair also agreed to take an anger management class.

West's lawyer, Blair Berk, and Crowley's attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, returned to court on Friday, January 29 to show proof of their clients' community work for the Red Cross and the case was dismissed, reports TMZ.com.
