The Game

COULD FACE CHARGES OVER TWITTER PRANK

8/13/2011 6:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0813-the-game-tweets-BN
Rapper The Game could face criminal charges after he tweeted the phone number of the sheriff's station in Compton, CA -- but told people it was the number to call for an internship -- causing the station's phone lines to become overrun with calls and delaying emergency services.

The calls began around 5:20 PM PT, with most callers hanging up when they heard it was a sheriff's station ... and the rest asking how they could intern for The Game.

Deputies eventually discovered The Game's tweets and Sheriff's Capt. Mike Parker tweeted at him to put an end to it (see above). The Game eventually responded (also above) and deleted the tweets.

The calls ended around 8:00 PM, but Capt. Parker said it was unclear how many people with legitimate calls could not get through during that time.

According to the Sheriff's Department, they plan on turning over a complaint to the District Attorney's office to possibly file charges -- including delaying or obstructing a peace officer in the performance of their duties.

This dude is the reason there's so much racial hatred. Everyone can see through his black skin that he's a liar. It's the rap culture of rip off society to feed your selfish needs. Take no responsibility. Big p*ssy.

....So, I see most of you-- never should have been born walking-abortions-- call a 7 digit number during times of emergencies-- figures, for it is clear most of you are not exactly rocket scientists.

Let me take a minute to describe the finer points of what to do during times of emergencies, for the many retarded amongst you;

The number for emergencies is a 3 digit number by the numerical # 911 i.e, thus, used in cases of--- rapes, muggings, assaults, shootings, stabbings, prostitutes being thrown from 62 story penthouse balconies--(Vegas, long story)-- medical emergencies, and did I mention murders, of which most of you should experience firsthand.

The Sheriffs office does little most of the day long, and this particular Watch Commander was most likely pissed, because the phone calls interrupted his obligatory 5:30 masturbatory rituals.

There is no well-grounded legal grievance here, well at-least no illegal issues of which the D.A. will pursue, because intent by Game is ambiguous at best.

Christ!!! And yet most of you, low-life, mental-midgets, racists, have the nerve to call The Game a moron--you people forfeit the right to be allowed to continue to exist....Artofwar

The Game should get the interns to conact my friend Cal. My last prank involved my crushing his car with a custom 30 metre axe. Would be funny to have them all call him offering to sell a car! http://youtu.be/c3y4-H2l31Q
