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."
