The Game

Off the Hook in Twitter Prank

8/17/2011 5:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0817-the-game-getty-BN
The Game is officially in the clear after allegedly tweeting the phone number of the Compton Sheriff's Station in L.A. .... to over half a million people.

Captain Mike Parker just released a statement, claiming, "The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department will not be seeking criminal charges."

"Based upon our investigation, as well as consultation with the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office, the LASD considers the criminal investigation into this matter closed."

As we previously reported, The Game claimed the tweet was accidental -- and publicly apologized on TMZ Live Monday for what he called a "a silly prank gone wrong."

Captain Parker says the apology was "relevant and well-received."

Congratulations to the Sheriff's for letting this one slide -

The Game has learned his lesson, and won't do it again.

Some one apologized? Really? Yay! Could manners return too? I like the story of the lady (?) who Tweeted a rude tweet during dinner in Houston....and when the Manager saw it, they asked her to leave. How lame is it to Tweet during dinner?

He needs to get his story straight. The day it happened he owned up to it. The next day, after some bad PR, he swore he didn't do it, it was his 'friend'. Now today, he did do it after all. Who will have done it tomorrow, I wonder.

I'm disappointed that the cops let this punk get away with his stupid little stunt. I'm sure he's laughing at them right now.

The police decided it's better not to let "The Game" 's supporters burn their city down, so they let the punk fool jerk criminal "The Game" off "The Hook". What a bunch of cowards. If you did what "The Game" did, you'd be in "The Jail". Non-enforcement of the law for the rich and famous, and enforcement of the same law for the poor and working poor. And the rich people who run the nation tell you that you're living in a free democratic country. And you're gullible and naive enough to fall for their lies. What a joke! LOL

It's a public number that with a little saavy can be easily found online or by calling and asking -- yet he has to apologize? Jeez. I thought we had the right to be able to reach the police.

He got away with this. There will be copy cats. What will the cops do then? They set a precedent by not caring about this.

He's still a jackass punk. You can bet he wouldn't have apologized if someone hadn't told him he had to. What a tool.
