The Game Slapped with Felony Charges
The 27-year-old rapper is charged with two felonies stemming from a February incident.
Following his previous arrest, the Game, a.k.a. SoCal MC Jayceon Terrell Taylor, was formally charged in a Los Angeles court room yesterday for making a criminal threat and possessing a firearm in a school zone, Billboard.com reports. The charges and arrest reportedly resulted from a Feb. 24 incident during a pickup basketball game in South Los Angeles, in which Taylor punched an opposing player, threatened to shoot him, and pulled a gun from his red Cadillac Escalade. Furthermore, Taylor has also been charged with exhibiting a firearm in the presence of an officer during the May 11 police search of his Glendale, CA home, which resulted in his original arrest. The Game is scheduled for arraignment in Los Angeles today, and, if convicted, could see up to five years behind bars.
