TWEET BY RAPPER THE GAME LEADS TO TELEPHONE FLOODING AT COMPTON SHERIFF’S STATION

The Los Angeles County sheriff’s department says The Game incited a telephone flash mob that overwhelmed the emergency phone system.

Capt. Mike Parker tells the Los Angeles Times that the rapper tweeted the number of the Compton station Friday and told his 580,000 followers that if they wanted an internship with him, they should call the number.

Sheriff’s Lt. Suzan Young says “the phones started ringing like crazy” around 5:20 p.m. Parker says phone lines were jammed for more than two hours.

The rapper later posted that his account was hacked but also tweeted that it was “an accident.”

The Game could face criminal charges. Parker says investigators are planning to forward a criminal complaint to the district attorney’s office.
