The Game -- Off the Hook in Twitter Prank

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."
