Rapper The Game might face charges for delaying or obstructing police officers after a Twitter prank involving Compton police on Friday. The Game posted a phone number on his Twitter page for a music internship and encouraged his more than 580,000 followers to call; turns out the number was actually for the Compton sheriff’s station, which was inundated with phone calls for three hours. The Game eventually agreed to take the number down, but later tweeted: "Yall can track a tweet down but cant solve murders ! Dat was an accident but maybe now yall can actually do yall job." During the rush of Game-related calls, the Compton station responded to reports of a missing person, two robberies, a stolen vehicle, and an incident of domestic violence. [Via Rolling Stone]
