LA Sheriff's Department Accepts Game's Apology In Twitter Prank

UPDATE: After Game issued an apology, the sheriff's office says it was "relevant and well received."

Rapper Game made headlines for all the wrong reasons last week when the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department opened a criminal investigation in response to his tweeting the phone number for the sheriff's Compton station.

In response, Game conducted an interview with CNN recently to explain the matter.

"One of my boys picked up my phone and started tweeting random numbers," he explained. The tweets came sometime after an earlier tweet when Game advertised that he was looking for interns. "The tweet about the internship was earlier in that day. It got lost in the media... He never sent out a tweet that said 'these numbers are for an internship.' He just tweeted a bunch of numbers jokingly."

Game reiterated that the tweet about the internship had been made earlier in the day, and that the tweets with the phone numbers were made in the evening.

"I never want to be the source of anything wrong happening to anybody, or anyone not being able to get through to help lines at the police station. But it's a ten-digit toll-free number, and when people are in trouble, they call 911."

"I don't ever want to see anyone get hurt. I got kids at home, I got a woman at home. My sincerest apologies to the sheriff's department, but it was a joke gone wrong."

Addressing the potential legal consequences, the West Coast emcee said, "If my apologies aren't enough...If anybody wants to take it further than that, then I have to do what I have to do. I never intended for anyone to take it the wrong way or for it to go this far."

UPDATE: The sheriff's department issued a statement saying that his apology was "relevant and well received."

"His willingness to help share with the media and the community that the safety of the public is what is most important, is a great message," the department said. "Based upon our investigation, as well as consultation with the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office, the LASD considers the criminal investigation into this matter closed. The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department will not be seeking criminal charges."

    It's offical, Game pays DX. This has nothing to do with Hip Hop, this is some straight TMZ or SOHH shit right here. Stop it or change your domain.

      As if 50 ever needs to drop an album again, the man himself is a business.

    • @ the 2nd anonymous

      considering Game's album got pushed back like 5 times and was at one point had the release date as TBA after one of the pushes, i'm not too worried about 50's album, it'll come out if he wants it to. As i recall, he said that he wasn't going to release, not interscope. Also Jeezy's album was shelved back in like March, now it's coming out Sept. something, so your logic is fucked.

      haha one question..WHERES 50's ALBUM..SHELVED BITCHES

  • to all the dumbasses

    thinking this is going to generate a buzz, how many people in Game's demographic do you think actually watch CNN? He wasn't even promoting R.E.D. nor mention it.

  • pussy...

    i knew he wasn't going to own up to it, and that he was going to use the "my twitter got hacked/someone else was using it" line. Hahaha fucker is so gangsta, then when he can actually get in trouble, he does some pussy shit. So he's saying one of his "boys" tweeted a bunch of random numbers, but somehow out of all the numbers, one of them was the Sheriff's department? Haha this fool is full of shit. Even after he got caught, he wrote, "So ya'll can't catch murderers but you can track down a tweet?"...yeah Game's a bitch now.

  • fuck a pig!

    fuck the police, shoot'em in the face till they dead!

  • hahaha

    hahaha this nigga is smart made a bigger buzz for red looking forward to the album

  • Mr.WeSt

    Let's just hope its not buzzkill for his red album sales...which track yall think is strongest and the weakest???

  • wetsnitch
