The Game Sued By Man He Allegedly Assaulted: Report

Civil suit was filed against MC on Thursday.

The man allegedly assaulted by Game during a pick-up basketball game last year has filed a civil suit against the MC, according to TMZ.

In court documents posted on the site, Shannon Rodrick said Game (real name: Jayceon Taylor) told him his "team is garbage" and "sucker-punched [Rodrick] with a closed fist on [Rodrick's] left cheek, causing [him] to fall backwards." In the suit, which was filed Thursday, Rodrick alleged Game went to his vehicle to get a gun and approached him, saying, "I'm going to blast this fool."

Calls to the rapper's rep for comment had not been returned on Friday, according to The Associated Press.

The charge stemmed from an incident that occurred in California in February 2007. Prosecutors argued Game punched Rodrick and threatened him with a gun during a pickup basketball game at the Rita Walters Educational Learning Complex in Los Angeles. The rapper wasn't arrested for the incident until three months later, when police searched his home for three hours in connection with the incident.

The Game was arrested after the incident and eventually pleaded no contest to felony possession of a firearm in a school zone. He served just eight days of a 60-day sentence before being released last weekend — although his manager and lawyer issued conflicting statements regarding his release, leading Game to release a statement of his own apologizing for the confusion.
