The Game’s legal woes seem to be getting worse and worse. You might be aware that the Compton rapper was recently involved in an altercation at a pro-am basketball game in Hollywood, wherein he got involved in a fight with another player. Depending on whom you choose to believe, one side hurled death threats at the other, at least one punch was thrown and a trip to the locker room to retrieve a gun may have been implied. The complicating factor, it turned out, is that the man Game found himself arguing with is actually a rookie police officer named Onyebuchi Awaji. Now, TMZreports that in a lawsuit filed today (April 6), Awaji is suing Game for his role in the March 29 brawl.
For their part, the rapper’s camp denies any wrongdoing on his part, saying that the punch Game threw was purely in self defense. His representatives also reiterated the claim that Awaji threatened to retrieve a gun from his gym bag, which Game took as a threat on his life. No further information about the lawsuit (or the LAPD’s internal investigation as to whether there was wrongdoing on Awaji’s part) is available at this time, but stay tuned to XXL for more details as they become available.
