The Game

LAPD Shows Him Mercy

on His Birthday

12/2/2012 8:16 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1202_the_game_tmzThe Game should have had his car towed in Los Angeles this week, but the LAPD decided to be nice to him because it was his birthday ... TMZ has learned.

Game told our photog on Thursday night that cops pulled him over in his Bentley and ticketed him for having tinted windows and paper license plates.

But law enforcement sources tell TMZ the rapper didn't have the Bentley registered, a huge no-no. We're told Game explained to police that he had purchased the car from a pro football player back in January and never got around to registering it. 

Our sources say the cops were going to tow the car, but since Game said it was his birthday ... they decided they didn't want to make him walk and gave him a little birthday break.

It was probably the best present he got this year.

This is WHY these characters think who they are! He had 11 MONTHS to get the car registered! This is the FIRST time a cop noticed the dark tinted windows and the paper plates? WOW! So he's paid NO registration fees, NO insurance, NO property tax if they have that where he lives and he is now scott free just because it was his birthday! I am sure he'll be running to the DMV ASAP! Yea, right!

Clearly anyone who goes by "The Game" can't be troubled to register a vehicle. The gentleman clearly must have more pressing business at hand.

33 years old? "The Game" still? It's time for an intervention.

As The Game found out, officers have the discretion to not give you a ticket on the side of the road, or to reduce your original charge to a lesser offense. For example, any speed over 80 mph is statutorily reckless driving. However, officers in many jurisdictions often choose to write simple speeding tickets for speeds in the low 80s.
