Game Arrested In North Carolina

The Black Wall Street label owner The Game was arrested today (Oct. 28th) in

Greensboro, North Carolina.

The Game, whose real name

is Jayceon Terrell Taylor, was shopping and greeting fans in the Four Seasons

Town Center in a Halloween mask

Authorities were unaware

of the reason for the commotion and approached Taylor and allegedly asked him

to remove his mask.

Once authorities realized

that he was a celebrity, they allegedly tried to diffuse the situation.

Officials said The Game

grew hostile and stated "Ya’ll don’t know who I am," and proceeded

to make a scene.

Police stated that after

several attempts to resolve the situation were unsuccessful, The Game and an

associate was subsequently arrested and charged with two misdemeanors of disorderly

conduct and resisting arrest.

The Game was released without

bail and was slated to performed at Winston-Salem State

University.

“They thought I was

Rodney King,” Game told WFMY News 2. “I would play the racial card

but we’ve done that too much. I’m here for the concert and signing

a little girl’s autograph got me arrested.”

Footage taken by a fan captures

several officers pushing and shoving the rapper, who’s not wearing a mask

during the incident.

As Game is backing away,

an officer pulls out a can of pepper spray and aims it in the rapper’s

direction.

The Game is then handcuffed

and led out of the mall.

“Whenever there’s

a use in force, regardless of where it occurs or when it occurs, we always initiate

an internal investigation and that’s exactly what will happen in this

case,” a police representative said. “There was a use of force and

we made an arrest for two individuals who are part of the rap group The Game.

When we applied pepper spray to those folks, that automatically means we will

initiate an investigation to determine whether that was justified. “

The Game said he would call

his lawyers to seek legal recourse.
