Game Turns Himself In to Police Over Basketball Beef

Game Turns Himself In to Police Over Basketball Beef

Rapper allegedly threatened to kill an off-duty cop.

Published June 8, 2015

Game's trash talking at a pick up game last March got him more than just a flagrant foul. The rapper had to turn himself into police on Monday after he was charged with making a criminal threat to a player on the opposing team...who happened to be an off-duty cop. Oops.

The former G-Unit standout sucker punched the officer after the two got into a heated argument on the court. The cop claims that Game threatened to kill him, while Game claims the opposite: that the cop is the one who made the threat, and said he had a gun in the gym bag. Police were called in and vowed to investigate both parties, and considering Game was the one who was charged, we're guessing the cop was cleared of wrongdoing.

Thankfully, the arrest was mostly a formality. According to TMZ, the "How We Do" rapper and reality star had to spend less than an hour behind bars before posting $50,000 bail. Still, he made sure to make the most of his last night of freedom. Game posted a pic of himself chillaxing in a hot tub on Sunday night, with the caption, "Relaxing in the sauna before I turn myself in..... But what you gone do when you get outta jail... I'm gonna have some fun."
