The rapper faces three felony counts in LA

The Game pleaded not guilty today (June 7) to charges of punching and threatening to shoot a man.

The rapper entered the pleas in Los Angeles Superior Court.

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

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

The rapper was arrested on May 11 at his home in Glendale, California and was released on $50,000 bail.

If convicted, the rapper could face up to five years in prison.
