It was the equivalent of getting nothing but raisin boxes in your goodie bag on Friday when the Game went to a mall in North Carolina to sign autographs. Instead of hanging with fans, the rapper was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest when he refused to take his mask off.
According to a report by The Associated Press, the 25-year-old rapper (born Jayceon Taylor), and his crew were accused of causing a scene at the Four Seasons Town Centre on Friday when police said they were behaving disruptively and swearing loudly while in the mall for the signing session.
Game said it was all a big misunderstanding. “I got arrested for signing autographs,” he told local TV station WFMY after being released on $500 bail. “Signing a little girl’s autograph got me arrested.”
Mall security officers said Game was wearing a full-face Halloween mask and cursing loudly and then refused to leave when asked. The rapper allegedly continued acting disruptively when police arrived, leading to his arrest. At one point, according to the AP, his posse was sprayed with pepper spray when they surrounded police in a “threatening” manner.
