Los Angeles County Sheriff's detectives are considering misdemeanor charges against rapper The Game for allegedly tweeting the phone number of a sheriff's station and prompting hundreds of his followers to flood dispatchers and deputies with phone calls, a spokesman said.
The sheriff's station in Compton was so overwhelmed with apparent prank calls for two hours Friday evening that help was delayed in response to urgent calls about a missing person, a spousal assault, two robberies and a stolen car, Capt. Mike Parker, Los Angeles County Sheriff spokesman, said.
Jayceon Taylor, The Game's real name, tweeted late Friday, "Yall can track a tweet down but cant solve murders ! Dat was an accident but maybe now yall can actually do yall job !!!!"FULL STORY
