IFWT_The Game basketball

Yesterday I posted a video of The Game punching an opposing player during a basketball game.  Game claims the guy threatened him and revealed he had a gun in his bag.  Well that might be true because the victim has been identified as an LAPD officer!

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Sports, the guy who got into it with the rapper during the hoops game over the weekend is a rookie cop who was off-duty at the time.

Game is saying the guy threatened him before the fight by hinting he was going to get a gun out of his gym bag. For his part, the “victim” told responding officers Game is the one who issued a death threat.  Game sources say he denies that.

LAPD is reportedly investigating the Game for battery, and also the off-duty officer. If he really did threaten to get his gun, he could be in big trouble.
