The Game may be ordered to pay over $1 million in damages stemming from an alleged basketball fueled assault in February 2007.
Shannon Rodrick, a basketball coach, claims that the Compton star, real name Jayceon Taylor, punched and threatened him almost 2 years ago during a Los Angles City Hoop game.
According to Rodrick’s March 2008 suit, he was coaching his Blazers team to a double digit blowout of the Litem-up, whom the Game was playing for.
During a timeout, the filing states the Game accosted Rodrick verbally before the alleged physical assault.
“Your team is garbage,” the lawsuit reports Game as stating. “You guys are nothing but a bunch of busters.”
After subsequently punching Rodrick in the face, the coach claims Game vowed to shoot him after he followed the Hip-Hop star outside the Rita Walters Learning Complex.
To prevent this, Rodrick details that he hid inside the venue until the rapper left.
Since the incident’s fallout, Game has already pleaded no contest to firearm possession in a school zone, served 8 days in jail, received three years probation, and is in the process of completing 150 hours of community service.
However, the popular emcee never responded to civil court allegations resulting from the altercation.
Rodrick’s attorney, Rosely George, is pushing for a default outcome at the next court session, which would force the defendant to pay $1.5 million dollars to Rodrick as compensation for the attack.
To avoid the hefty payout, the Compton emcee will need to attend and make a case at the next scheduled court session on April 22.
Since releasing his gold certified third project LAX last summer, Game has so far maintained his vow to “retire” from making any further studio albums.
At press time, the Game could not be reached for comment.
