“The Game” In Trouble For Pretending To Be A Cop

January 31st, 2007 // Leave a Comment

Sigh. Why does everything remind me of “Armed & Famous”? Why, oh why did they have to cancel that show?

Anywho, the rapper, The Game, whose real name is Jayceon Taylor, appeared in court yesterday and claims innocence. The charge is impersonating a police officer and the incident in question refers to the allegation that Taylor instructed his driver to run several red lights and to do so because he was an undercover police officer. Page Six reports that The Game’s lawyer, Jeffrey Lichtman, believes his client is the real victim.

“The cops follow him from the moment he lands to the moment he leaves. A limo driver freaked out, that’s it. They are harassing him, but there will be some harassment going the other way at the trial.”

An NYPD rep said, “If he feels he’s being harassed, he should file a complaint with the Civilian Complaint Review Board.”

Wow. So, you’re not allowed to run red lights while pretending to be a cop? What is this, China?
