The Game sentenced to jail The Game Tickets

The rapper must serve time on weapons charges

The Game sentenced to jail
The Game has been sentenced to 60 days in jail after pleading no contest to felony possession of a firearm in a school zone.

The charges against the Compton rapper stem from a fight he was involved in during a basketball game on February 24, 2007 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.

Two additional counts against Taylor were dismissed in a plea deal yesterday (February 11), reports the Associated Press.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Fred Wapner gave the rapper credit for serving two days toward his jail time and added 150 hours of community service and three years of probation to his sentence.
