Game Hemmed Up by NC Police
Aftermath artist The Game was arrested in North Carolina last Friday. The West Coast Emcee was accused of disturbing the peace at the Four Seasons Town Center mall.
The police say The Game and his entourage wore masks and yelled out profanities in the middle of the mall. They also say the rapper and his crew acted erratically and resisted arrest.
The Game disagrees.
“I got arrested for signing autographs,” Game says about his arrest
“Signing little girls autographs got me arrested in North Carolina,” he adds.
One of the members in The Game’s posse was able to videotape the encounter with the police.
On the tape, Game is seen with an officer. The police officer sprays mace on Game and his entourage. The tape also shows The Game falling to the ground after the police subdue him with the spray.
“It’s just unfair, man. The behavior is unfair,” Game said.
The Game was hesitant in claiming it was a racially motivated arrest.
“I would play the [race] card but I think we use that too much, man. But, I don’t know, man.”
So, what will The Game do now?
“I got to bring up a case,” he said. “As soon as I wake up in the morning, I’ll be on the phone with my lawyers,” he claimed.
The police department will look into the matter.
“Whenever there’s a use [of] force, regardless of where it occurs or when it occurs, we always initiate an internal investigation and that’s exactly what will happen in this case,” a representative of the police station said.
The use of pepper spray in the incident is causing the police to take a closer look at this situation.
“There was a use of force and we made an arrest for two individuals who are part of the rap group The Game. When we applied pepper spray to those folks, that automatically means we will initiate an investigation to determine whether that was justified,” the rep said.
In other Game news, he will release “Stop Snitching, Stop Lying” about his on-going beef with 50 Cent and G-Unit. The DVD will contain several altercations between the two camps.
