The Game Pleads Not Guilty to Three Felonies, Details Emerge in Case

game12.jpgCompton native The Game appeared in a Los Angeles courtroom earlier today and pleaded not guilty to charges of making criminal threats, possession of a firearm in a school zone and exhibiting a firearm on the grounds of a facility for minors. The rapper stands accused of brandishing a firearm during an argument over a pick up game of basketball at the Rita Walters Educational Learning Complex on February 24. He is currently free on $50,000 bail. According to LA’s CBS News, the alleged victim, Rodrick Shannon, explained the incident during a September 4 preliminary hearing. 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.

  • IgetMoney

    Ok, ima say something totally off the subject of the game being in jail, and i want everyones opinion on this, i think that 50 and game should get back to together, why, because they were way too sick together, and they need to get back together, that would be the best for hip hop, think of it, everyone says they hate 50 and all that bullshit, but when game and him were together, everyone listened to them, they need to resolve their issues and get back together, i would definitly listen to them again, if they made songs like hate it or love it, and how we do, tell me you wouldnt and i would have to slap you in the forehead, so all that says 50 cent and the game need to get back together say “i”
