*Jayceon Terrell Taylor a/k/a The Game says it’s unbelievable that authorities want to charge him for allegedly inciting people on Twitter to harass the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department. He’s claiming he never sent the tweets in question.
But it looks like it’s gonna take a lot more than that to calm down Sheriff Dept. officials who are crazy livid after a tweet went out from the rapper’s twitter account urging people to call the Sheriff’s substation in Compton to get an internship, reports TMZ.
But The Game says he didn’t write the tweet in question. Game says he was in the middle of a photo shoot Friday night when a childhood friend of his — whose Twitter handle is @wackstar — began going to town on The Game’s phone … typing in five phone numbers and calling people to action.
The Game insists his friend had no idea one of the numbers went to the Sheriff’s Department. The Sheriff’s claim that once their office was flooded with phone calls they asked The Game to call people off — but Game says he never received the message. As he put it, “They don’t have (my) number and I’m not following the police.”
As for the police wanting to have The Game charged with a crime, he says, “Casey Anthony can get away with murder and The Game goes to jail for tweeting. God bless America.”
Capt. Mike Parker from the L.A. County Sheriff’s Dept. tells TMZ that Game’s explanation doesn’t close this case just yet:
“We find the rapper’s alleged comments in news media reports and on Twitter interesting and relevant, including who he says is actually responsible.”
Capt. Parker wants Game to contact the Sheriff’s Department so they can sort things out. Until then, Capt. Parker says, “The investigation continues.”
