Kanye West walked into a police station for less than an hour Thursday...when no one was looking.

Kanye was booked in connection with his misdemeanor battery case for punching a photographer at LAX.  West pled no contest earlier this month and was required to turn himself in for booking.

So Kanye, and his clever lawyer, chose yesterday at 4:30 PM.  He arrived at the Hollywood LAPD station, got his mug shot taken and got fingerprinted.  The, for lack of a better word, ordeal took a total of 49 minutes and Kanye was out.

Kanye has to keep his nose clean for 2 years and also attend 24 private therapy sessions for anger management.
