The Game's Alleged Victim Blasts Back with Suit

3/14/2008 8:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The man who The Game allegedly assaulted on a street basketball court has filed a civil suit against the rapper, claiming assault, battery, a civil rights violation and negligence. Damn -- all over a pick-up basketball game!

Shannon Rodrick claims The Game, whose real name is Jayceon Taylor, approached him and said aggressively, "Your team is garbage." Rodrick then says, according to court documents, that Taylor continued to provoke him when, during a time-out, the rapper "sucker-punched [Rodrick] with a closed fist on [Rodrick's] left cheek causing [him] to fall backwards." Rodrick then says Taylor went to his vehicle to get a gun, and walked towards him saying, "I'm going to blast this fool."

The Game was arrested after the incident. He eventually pleaded no contest to felony possession of a firearm in a school zone. He served just eight days of a 60 day sentence before being released.

I'm curious as to why it's suprising when a 'gangster rapper' acts like a gangster. What is truly suprising is the nothing sentence that this wonderful productive member of our great society recieved. That judge should be ashamed of himself/herself!

Not only should this bozo do time for this stupidity, he should have to give every dime he has to a charitable organization that does something good for the youth of this country, unlike him. This idiot's not only do not desrve any money they have , they also desrve no respect for being too stupid to walk the streets. He is just and ignorant guy who even mnoey won't change. He thinks being a thug is cool, it only makes him and others look like fools.
