The rapper just can’t seem to stay out of trouble and authorities are investigating tweets that led to a telephone flash mob. It appears that the emergency telephone system at a LA county sheriffs department was overwhelmed by calls.
The tweet on The Game’s Twitter account stated if someone wanted an internship, they should call the Compton stations phone number, which he also posted on his account. By 5:23 pm on Friday the station was jammed with calls and was forced to bring in additional help. It was apparent that the rapper was the cause considering many asked about a music internship, to no avail.
After the matters were settled, Sheriff’s Capt. Mike Parker discussed the situation stating during the time of the phone calls there were two robberies, a missing person, and spousal abuse issues, all of which were unable to get through. When police finally tracked down the tweet, The Game came back saying that his account had been hacked and that the situation was an accident.
Next week the matters are gong to be turned over to the district attorneys office. At the time the rapper could face charges of maliciously disrupting or impeding communications over a public safety radio frequency, obstruction of justice or other charges related to delaying a peace officer from doing their job. The Game took the number down from his account at about 11 pm, after many attempts by Parker to do so.By: Cory Perrin
