The Game has been released from the Twin Towers Correctional Facility in Los Angeles after serving just eight days of a 60 day sentence. The rapper’s release was confirmed by his attorney Shawn Chapman Holley to website this morning (March 10). The Compton MC was sentenced to two months in jail after accepting a plea deal on a felony count of weapons possession. The charge stemmed from a February 24, 2007 incident at the Rita Walters Educational Learning Complex in Los Angeles. According to witnesses, the Compton native got into an argument with a fellow player during a basketball game and subsequently threatened the man with a firearm he retrieved from his Cadillac Escalade. Last month the rapper agreed to the plea deal and prosecutors agreed to dismiss two additional charges of making criminal threats and exhibiting a firearm in the presence of a peace officer.
