Rapper must face felony charges

The Game was ordered today (September 5) to stand trial on three felony charges.

The charges are a result of a fight the rapper was involved in during a basketball game on February 24 in South Los Angeles.

The Game, whose real name is Jayceon Terrell Taylor, allegedly pulled a gun from his Cadillac Escalade after punching a player on the opposing team and threatening to shoot him.

He has now been ordered to appear in court to face counts of making of making criminal threats, possession of a firearm in a school zone and exhibiting a firearm on the grounds of a facility for minors, reports the Associated Press.

A Superior Court commissioner ordered him arraigned on September 25. He is currently free on $50,000 bail, but could face more than five years in jail if convicted.
