The Game enters a not guilty plea to three felony charges.
The charges are making criminal threats, possessing a firearm in a school zone, and exhibiting a firearm in the presence of an officer. The incident allegedly took place at South L.A.’s Rita Walters Educational Learning Complex on February 24.
According to the AP, Rodrick Shannon, victim, testified at a preliminary hearing on September 4 that he exchanged words with Game who was playing for an opposing team.
Shannon claimed that Game told him that his team was “garbage” and punched him in the left cheek. Shannon then said that when he put himself in a fighting stance to defend himself, people from the rapper’s team grabbed him while Game left the court.
Shannon then states that when he went to the parking lot, he saw the rapper reach into a Cadillac Escalade and brandish a firearm.
“He started proceeding towards me,” Shannon testified. “The gun was still in his hand. He yelled that I’m a … fool. I turned around and ran because I feared for my life.”
The Game is currently free on $50,000 bail and his next court date has been set for October 30. If convicted, he faces more than five years in prison.
