Five Greensboro police officersinvolved in last year’s arrest of The Game have filed a defamation lawsuit against the rapper and his associates.Officers Hien Nguyen, Matthew Brown, Ryan Childrey, Romaine Watkins and David Gregory said they were libeled and slandered and had their images misappropriated, according to the lawsuit filed at the Guilford County Courthouse this week.The lawsuit stems from comments made to a TV rapper by the rapper, whose real name is Jayceon Taylor, after his arrest at a shopping mall on Oct. 28, 2005, in which he compared his treatment to that of Rodney King and claimed he was arrested for signing autographs.The officers are each seeking more than $10,000 in damages. One officer says in the lawsuit that he lost $7,500 in off-duty pay because he was afraid of returning to work at the mall.
Mall security officers said Taylor was wearing a full-face Halloween mask and cursing loudly, and refused to leave at their request, police said. When police arrived, Taylor continued to act up and was arrested on charges of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, officials said.Other members of the group were sprayed with pepper spray when they surrounded the officers in a threatening manner, police said. The incident was captured on videotape by a member of the group and is available on the Internet.
Here is the video of the arrest. The arrest happens around the 1:00 mark. I love the way Game’s crew have total disrespect for the police officers. If a police officer is afraid to return to work after arresting Game and his members of his crew, he needs to turn in his badge. SMH at the police trying to come up $$$$ on Game’s new album, probably heard his son playing one of the bomb ass leaked songs.
