The LAPD was looking into multiple charges against [mp3com-artist]The Game[/mp3com-artist] for tweeting their phone number for his fans to call and he apologized to them. He claims that it wasn’t him and they believe him.

According to HiphopDX.com:

In response, Game conducted an interview with CNN recently to explain the matter.

“One of my boys picked up my phone and started tweeting random numbers,” he explained. The tweets came sometime after an earlier tweet when Game advertised that he was looking for interns. “The tweet about the internship was earlier in that day. It got lost in the media… He never sent out a tweet that said ‘these numbers are for an internship.’ He just tweeted a bunch of numbers jokingly.”

Game reiterated that the tweet about the internship had been made earlier in the day, and that the tweets with the phone numbers were made in the evening.

“I never want to be the source of anything wrong happening to anybody, or anyone not being able to get through to help lines at the police station. But it’s a ten-digit toll-free number, and when people are in trouble, they call 911.”

“I don’t ever want to see anyone get hurt. I got kids at home, I got a woman at home. My sincerest apologies to the sheriff’s department, but it was a joke gone wrong.”

Addressing the potential legal consequences, the West Coast emcee said, “If my apologies aren’t enough…If anybody wants to take it further than that, then I have to do what I have to do. I never intended for anyone to take it the wrong way or for it to go this far.”

I wonder if simply apologizing would help in other criminal situations for the rest of us? Nope!!
