Game’s Manager Issues Statement On Arrest Warrant

The Game’s manager

Jimmy "Henchmen" Rosemond has released a statement regarding an arrest

warrant that was recently issued for the rapper in North Carolina.

Authorities issued

the warrant after the Compton rapper missed a March 28 court date to face charges

of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

Rosemond, who was

featured on the front page of the Money Section of USA Today Friday (April

14), stated that his client’s situation is a result of a simple mix-up.

"There was

a change of address in which Game did not receive his court summons," Rosemond,

CEO of Czar Entertainment, told AllHipHop.com in a statement. "It was a

simple mistake and yes, a paper warrant was issued. However, his attorneys are

working to clear this matter immediately."

The arrest warrant

stems from an incident in a local shopping mall on Oct. 28, 2005. Game, born

Jayceon Taylor, was in Greensboro, N.C., to perform at Winston-Salem State University’s

2005 Homecoming.

The rapper visited

a local mall wearing a Halloween mask. Police accused Game of ignoring requests

to remove the mask and leave the mall.

As a result, a

minor altercation between Game and an off-duty police officer ensued, resulting

in the rapper’s arrest and a claim of police brutality.

The police officer

also pepper-sprayed Game and several associates during the dispute, which was

videotaped by a member of the rapper’s entourage.

The altercation

was included on Game’s DVD Stop Snitchin’, Stop Lyin’.

The Internal Affairs

Department of the Greensboro Police Department viewed the incident on the DVD

and cleared the arresting officer of any wrongdoing.
