The Game Pranks the Sheriff's Office in Compton

We always suspected that L.A. rapper The Game was a closet Jerky Boys fan, and now we know for sure. Game, real name Jayceon Taylor, caused a ruckus over the phone lines of the sheriff’s office in Compton, CA, when he tweeted about an internship opportunity and listed their phone number in the contact info. Tech-savvy HQ bureau Captain Mike Parker, tracked down the source of the countless calls, and asked the rapper to remove the tweet with the erroneous contact number. He did, but refused to apologize or take responsibility, blaming the prank on a friend. Eventually, he tweet-taunted the department, saying “Yall can track a tweet down but cant solve murders ! Dat was an accident but maybe now yall can actually do yall job.”
Always a humorless bunch, the department is now considering bringing legal action against The Game for prompting the deluge of calls. The charges Taylor would face include delaying or obstructing a peace officer in the performance of their duties. An incredulous Taylor once again took to Twitter to laugh about the possibility: “I can see it now: ‘What u in 4 homie.. robbery. What about u dog… Murder. Aye… What u in here 4 game… (Pokes Chest Out) A TWEET’ !!!” Hey, it’s about time that gangsta rap moved into the 21st century.
