Kanye West was arrested after an alleged run-in with a photographer outside a nightclub in Newcastle on Friday morning.

The rapper was arrested on suspicion of assault outside the Tup Tup Palace, reports Britain's Evening Chronicle.

"We can confirm that a 31-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of assault following an incident at a Newcastle city center club in the early hours of this morning," said a Northumbria Police spokeswoman. "He was released without charge and no further action is being taken."

Earlier in the night, West performed a sold out show at the Metro Radio Arena as part of his Glow in the Dark world tour.

This is not the rap star's first clash with the paparazzi. In September he was arrested for vandalism and the Los Angeles airport after allegedly damaging a photographer's camera.
