Awaji is now claiming the hit may have caused brain damage. He also accuses Game of fleeing the scene when he found out police were called. Game has insisted he was acting in self-defense, saying Awaji threatened to shoot him.
Besides facing a civil case, Game is reportedly under criminal investigation as well. The LAPD could possibly charge the “Hate It Or Love It” rhymer with battery. Authorities are also looking into Awaji’s actions.
