Shannon claims that Game told, who was playing on the opposing team, told the man he was “garbage” and struck him with his fist on his cheek. Both men then reportedly got into a fighting stance, but Game walked out of the gym after the rapper’s associates grabbed Shannon. When Shannon went outside to look for his son, he says, he saw the rapper reach into his Cadillac Escalade and produce a pistol. “He started proceeding towards me. The gun was still in his hand. He yelled that I’m a fool. I turned around and ran because I feared for my life,” Shannon told the court. Game has a pretrial hearing scheduled for October 30.
