The Game Settles Lawsuit Over Basketball Fight
The Game’s legal troubles stemming from a fight on a basketball court in South Los Angeles three years ago have finally been settled.
The rapper reached a settlement with Shannon Rodric, who sued the rapper after a fight during a pickup game of basketball at The Rita Walters Learning Complex on February 24, 2007.
According to the lawsuit, Rodric provoked the initial confrontation by calling The Game’s team garbage and labeled them a bunch of “bustas.”
During the fight, The Game punched Rodric in the face and pulled a handgun on him, as he was coaching the opposing team.
The Game had previously pleaded no contest to felony possession of a firearm in a school zone and was sentenced to 60 days in prison, although he only served eight days.
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
