Game Cleared Of Criminal Charges Over Tweet
Rapper Game has been cleared by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, after he faced criminal charges for sending out a tweet.
The drama unfolded on August 12th, when Game tweeted the number of the Compton Sheriff's Station to over 580,000 of his followers, resulting in a “telephone flash mob” that jammed emergency phone lines for hours.
As a result, officers were late responding to several serious crimes.
According to Captain Mike Parker, the investigation has been dropped, since Game apologized and blamed the action on a friend who was using his cell phone.
“Based upon our investigation, as well as consultation with the Los Angeles County attorneys office, the LASD consider the criminal investigation into this matter close,” Captain. Mike Parker said in a statement.
Game is preparing to release the R.E.D. Album, which is due in stores on August 23rd.
