The Game ordered to stand trial

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.
