Rapper The Game has denied that he sent a prank tweet that incited a telephone flash mob that overwhelmed the emergency phone system in Los Angeles County. Continue reading after the jump.


Police have opened a criminal investigation after it is claimed the rapper tweeted the number of one police station and told his 580,000 followers that if they wanted an internship with him, they should call the number.

The 31-year-old said he was in the middle of a photo shoot when a childhood friend sent the message.

He voiced anger that the police are investigating the prank. ‘Casey Anthony can get away with murder and The Game goes to jail for tweeting. God bless America,’ he told TMZ.
Lieutenant Suzan Young said ‘the phones started ringing like crazy’ around 5:20pm. The phone lines were jammed for more than two hours.

‘It wasn’t me’, he posted on Twitter, pointing to a friend as causing the disturbance.
‘@wackstar hacked my Twitter earlier….. Arrest him police… He is to blame. #TellinOnYouDemetrius,’ he wrote on the site.
‘This was beyond irresponsible,’ Sheriff Captain Mike Parker told the LA Times. ‘The deputies’ ability to answer the phones and dispatch personnel to help these people in danger was significantly impeded.’
Mr Parker said he tweeted The Game at around 7 pm, urging the rapper to call off the jest.
In another Tweet, the rapper critiqued LA county sheriffs for their work on the case: ‘Yall can track a tweet down but cant solve murders ! Dat was an accident but maybe now yall can actually do yall job !!!! #iSpeak4ThePeople.’
Representatives for The Game have not yet responded to a request for comment.
