After a busy BET Awards weekend, the Game found himself in court facing a judge. The Compton rapper has been charged with the assault and battery on an off-duty police officer during a basketball game

Reports the New York Post:

The hip-hop artist, whose real name is Jayceon Terrell Taylor, was charged with one felony count of making criminal threats and one count of misdemeanor assault and battery. 

He pleaded not guilty during a court appearance Monday.

Prosecutors say Taylor and the officer played on opposite teams at a basketball game at Hollywood High School in March. After a foul call against Taylor, authorities say he approached the officer and threw a punch.

Taylor faces up to three years in prison if convicted. He is free on $50,000 bail and is due back in court July 30.

We’re going to go ahead and guess this one gets either settled out of court or the Game takes an anger management class.
