Multi-platinum rapper Game

has been hit with assault charges as well as a $280 million dollar civil lawsuit,

stemming from an incident at a Maryland radio station in January.

Prosecutors in Prince Georges

County, Maryland have formally filed assault and battery charges against Game,

born, Jaceyon Taylor, after a now-infamous incident in which the rapper allegedly

assaulted radio host DJ Zxulu, formerly of 93.9 WKYS-FM in Washington, D.C.

on January 21st, 2005.

Another man has

come foward claiming that he was assaulted as well. Kwasi Jones’ lawsuit alleges

that in addition to the assault of the on air-personality, a group of 20 men

accosted him and assaulted him in the radio station.

G-Unit, Shady Records and

Aftermath Entertainment are named in the lawsuit as well, since Game is an artist

on 50 Cent’s label, which is distributed by companies owned by Eminem and Dr.

Dre.

Jones also claims the record

labels were negligent for issuing a remix to “Hate It or Leave It,” which originally

appeared on The Game’s album The Documentary.

On the remix to

“Hate It or Leave It” featuring 50 Cent Game rapped: “I’m rap’s MVP/Don’t make

me remind y’all what happened in D.C.”

"I’m still trying to get over the situation and the song doesn’t help,"

Jones told Celebrity Justice.

“This is my public apology,”

Game told BET when the video premiered on BET.

“To all the people at Radio

1, I’m being sincere; we’re sorry about what happened in D.C. It’ll never happen

again.”

Radio 1 pulled Game’s record,

but the ban was later lifted.

Jones alleges assault and

battery, emotional distress and negligence. Representatives for Game had no

comment.
