LAPD Officer Facing Disciplinary Action Over Recording of The Game in Jail Cell

game1.jpgAn unidentified Los Angeles Police officer is facing disciplinary action over a video recording of Compton rapper The Game in police custody. According to the Los Angeles Times, the officer recorded a short video clip of the rapper flashing money while sitting in a holding cell following his May 12 arrest for suspicion of making threats. The clip was later posted on the website under the title “The Game — Still Pimpin in Custody.” Cmdr. Jim Voge of the LAPD’s Internal Affairs division told the Times that the officer is under investigation and that the matter has been referred to his commanding officer. Authorities identified the officer as part of a larger effort to end cooperation between law enforcement professionals and celebrity gossip websites and tabloids. Harvey Levin, managing editor of, issued a statement to the Times noting that TMZ does not comment on where it obtains its material. The Game has since been charged with possession of a firearm in a school zone, exhibiting a firearm in the presence of an officer and making criminal threats. He allegedly pulled out a pistol on an unidentified person during a pick up basketball game at the Rita Walters Educational Learning Complex in L.A.
