The Game

I Was Pulled Over Because I'm Black!

2/7/2014 1:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0207-the-game-copsPolice just pulled over rapper The Game in L.A. and searched his brand new Rolls Royce -- and Game is NOT happy ... claiming he was nabbed for DWB -- Driving While Black.

Game tells TMZ, police pulled him over for talking on his cellphone ... but he insists he wasn't. Game says he was ordered out of the car and police searched it without permission.

Game says officers were blunt  ... if he didn't let them search the car, they'd arrest him.

According to the rapper, once all was said and done -- and the officers came up empty -- they cited him for expired tags and impounded the Rolls.

Our cop sources insist it had nothing to do with race -- claiming Game WAS a cell phone scofflaw  ... and the search was a matter of protocol before impounding the car.

How do you have expired tags on a brand new car? And who has the money for a car like that, but doesn't keep up with the tag.

Since when does your car get impounded for expired tabs?! It's usually a warning or a ticket! I don't know if this was a profiling instance, but Driving While Black is a real thing people - you're obviously not black or don't have any black friends if you don't think the police profile black men on the road (esp. young black men or ones driving flashy cars)!!

If the car is brand new, how does it have expired tags? The temporary tag? Either way, that is a fix it ticket, not an impoundable offense. Effing cops.

who cares    

With the money he has he deserved having his car towed for expired tags, it's not like he is poor so no excuse for it... As far as talking on the phone they should start impounding peoples cars for talking on their cells. So game is saying he wasn't on his phone his tags were not expired and his car was towed because he was DWB.. Got it...

Nobody Special    

Expired Tags means 2 things, He has not paid the Taxes yet on the Car to get the Reregistration and if the car is not registered the Auto Insurance is no Good.

Law is the Law.

Pay your Taxes, get the Reg & Insurance, don't talk on the phone while driving.

Or are Celebs special? Do they get to break the Law while the rest of you don't?

Look at the Bright Side Game, Now you can write a new Rap Song about this And make another million, this way you can pay your Bills for the next expensive car you buy.
