Kanye West may find himself in hot water following charges filed by a man who claims the rapper assaulted him in Beverly Hills.

The 36-year-old "Bound 2" artist allegedly got into a scuffle after the 18-year-old yelled racial slurs and verbal insults toward West's fiance, Kim Kardashian, and the paparazzi that were following her, according to a statement released by the Beverly Hills police Monday afternoon.

According to the statement, "Mr. West had left the location prior to Officers arrival," but the teenager involved in the altercation is allegedly planning to press battery charges for the incident. TMZ reported that Kardashian has met with her lawyer and plans to also file charges against the 18-year-old for "making criminal threats."

West's representatives have not yet issued a statement on the incident.
