Game Under Investigation After Tweeting L.A. Sheriff’s Phone Number

Game

Game is up to more trouble. The “Red Nation” rapper had Compton sheriff’s phone lines ringing off the hook after giving out the station’s number on Twitter.

It all started when Game offered his 580,000 Twitter followers an internship at his label Black Wall Street, prompting them to call the provided number to apply. But instead of hearing a BWS representative on the other end, callers were directed to the Compton police department.

The L.A. Sheriff’s Department opened a criminal investigation following the chaos-causing tweet, reports the Los Angeles Times. As a result, hundreds of callers bombarded the emergency phone system, delaying service.

“This was beyond irresponsible,” said Sheriff’s Capt. Mike Parker. “The deputies’ ability to answer the phones and dispatch personnel to help these people in danger was significantly impeded.”

Extra deputies were needed to handle the high amount of calls. It was unknown how many legitimate emergency calls did not get through because all lines were engaged for over two hours.

“Yall can track a tweet down but cant solve murders ! Dat was an accident but maybe now yall can actually do yall job !!!! #iSpeak4ThePeople,” tweeted Game after Parker asked him to remove the tweet.

Investigators are compiling a criminal complaint and will pass their findings to the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office for criminal filing. “Each phone call made does open the possibility for an additional charge,” added Parker.

    Really? We put Wiz Khalifa in the “Elite” rapper section. 1 barely gold album in? ‘Ye stopped tweeting in March & only just came back for promotional reasons. Weezy doesn’t tweet by himself he has other people doing it for him. & $11,000,000 in the bank is play bread to an elite rapper

    Damn, that’s so ‘OG’. =p

    Maybe it wasn’t the best way to go about it, but it got the attention that perhaps he himself wanted.

    Game has what, 2 albums left to release? Maybe he can run to become the Mayor of Compton, or whatever it would fall under.

    If he wants change, he should step up to the plate and make it his own responsibility. Not get thousands upon thousands of people to bombard the police department, which kinda contradicts what his main objective was.

    Ah well. Any publicity is good publicity, right?

    Is he stupid? And please, tell me how that would have been an accident. If you’re this dumb, you deserve whatever charges they throw at you.

    It was a human mistake. But he does need to own up to it, rather than putting the blame on someone else. Maybe he’s right about the police not doing their job, but that is a whole ‘nother conversation.
    He should’ve apologized.
