The Game

I Didn't Punk the Cops On Twitter

The Game is incredulous that cops want to charge him for allegedly inciting people on Twitter to harass the L.A. County Sheriff's Department, claiming he never sent the tweets in question.

Sheriff's officials are livid after a tweet went out from The Game's twitter account urging people to call the Sheriff's substation in Compton to get a rap internship.

But The Game tells TMZ he never authored the tweet in question. Game says he was in the middle of a photo shoot Friday night when a childhood friend of his -- whose Twitter handle is @wackstar -- began going to town on The Game's phone ... typing in five phone numbers and calling people to action.

The Game insists his friend had no idea one of the numbers went to the Sheriff's Department. The Sheriffs claim that once their office was flooded with phone calls they asked The Game to call people off -- but Game says he never received the message. As he put it, "They don't have my number and I'm not following the police."

As for the police wanting to have The Game charged with a crime, he says, "Casey Anthony can get away with murder and The Game goes to jail for tweeting. God bless America."

The Game = The Liar. What a douche. Bold then fold. He'll drop the tough talk/act when the LAPD or LASP comes to get him.

Move to Florida if you want to get away with anything!! Won't take long for all the criminal sorts across the US to get the idea, and make everyone else safe across the US.

Well then "Game Over", if it wasn't you, then kindly supply the name and contact info, to the idiot that put your ass in the air, to the po-pos and let them handle it.
I mean, chances are, they will probably prosecute him instead of you. And if this idiot is really your friend, he should want to take responsibility for his actions instead of hanging your ass out there.
See there, problem solved. Unless, of course, you're lying thru your teeth.....

Uh, yesterday you did take ownership for making the tweets but today you didn't make them?

At least he didn't claim his account was 'hacked', the Twitter equivalent of "The dog ate my homework. Really."

Still don't know who this tool is. I know he wore a baseball cap to a friends funeral. That's when I decided knowing who he was, wasn't imporatnt. He needs to be a man and own up to what he did.

he should be caned in public...

Caning is a form of corporal punishment (see that article for generalities and alternatives) consisting of a number of hits (known as "strokes" or "cuts") with a single cane usually made of rattan, generally applied to the offender's bare or clothed buttocks (see spanking) or hand(s) (on the palm). Application of a cane to the knuckles or the shoulders has been much less common. Caning can also be applied to the soles of the feet (foot whipping). The size and flexibility of the cane and the mode of application, as well as the number of the strokes, vary greatly—from a couple of light strokes with a small cane across the seat of a junior schoolboy's trousers, to 24 very hard, wounding cuts on the bare buttocks with a large, heavy, soaked rattan as a judicial punishment in south-east Asia.

Nice job, throwing his "childhood friend" under the bus on this one.

The guy is setting a bad example by saying, not my fault. Just own it and say SORRY and offer to tweet that using emergency number is a bad idea, and I bet this mess just all goes away.
