Game Launching Rolex Records: 'We're Gonna Do It Big'

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles County prosecutors will decide this week whether to press charges against The Game, after a tweet from the rapper's account incited a telephone flash mob that overwhelmed the emergency phone system at a sheriff's station.

Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore said Sunday that agency officials will send the results of their criminal investigation to the district attorney's office in the next few days.

Whitmore says The Game, whose real name is Jayceon Terrell Taylor, could face a number of misdemeanor counts. Deputies have yet to make contact with the rapper.

The sheriff's department alleges The Game tweeted the Compton station's phone number on Friday and told his 580,000 followers to call the number if they wanted an internship.

But the rapper told TMZ he never wrote the tweet. He said he was at a photo shoot when a friend of his -- who goes by the Twitter handle @wackstar -- got ahold of the Game's phone and begin typing messages and numbers.

The Game insisted he had no idea one of the numbers was to the Sheriff's Department. He said he shouldn't be charged with a crime.

"Casey Anthony can get away with murder, and the Game goes to jail for tweeting. God bless America," he said.

The Game rose to fame as a member of the group G-Unit and received two Grammy nomination for his solo album "The Documentary."
