"Mos Def" Wanted

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Authorities say rapper Mos Def is being sought
on an arrest warrant in Las Vegas after allegedly scuffling with a
photographer at a fashion trade show in August.

Police say the 35-year-old rapper, whose real name is Dante
Terrell Smith, is wanted on a warrant charging him with felony
robbery and misdemeanor malicious destruction of property.

Officer Ramon Denby says police want Smith to surrender himself.

Smith's publicist in New York didn't immediately respond to
messages seeking comment.

Sixty-year-old photographer Volker Correl was taking photos at
the Men's Apparel and Garment Industry Convention when he says
Smith ripped the camera from around his neck.
