The Game Under Investigation For Punching LAPD Officer


(AllHipHop News) The Game’s decision to punch a man during a pick-up basketball game could get the California based rapper in legal trouble. According to TMZ, the person at the receiving end of the blow was an off duty L.A. cop.

The site reports the LAPD is now investigating the incident, and Game could face battery charges. The rookie officer is also under investigation, because Game claims the man threatened to shoot him before the altercation began. It is not clear if Game was aware the victim was a police officer at the time.

Game has had to deal with issues involving law enforcement in the past. He was arrested in October 2005 for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest in Greensboro, North Carolina. The cops claimed game refused to remove his Halloween mask while in a local mall and cursed at the officers.

In August 2011, Game tweeted out the number of the L.A. Sheriff’s Department’s Compton station. Many of his followers dialed the number thinking they were calling the rapper about an internship opportunity. The station’s phone lines were flooded which reportedly delayed the emergency phone system and emergency service.
