The Game Reaches Plea Deal For Punching Off-Duty Police Officer

The Game has entered a plea deal saying no contest in the case where he was accused of punching an off-duty police officer during a Pro-Am basketball game in March of 2015.

He will not receive jail time and was sentenced to three years probation for charges of misdemeanor battery and criminal threats, TMZ reports. He was also demanded to perform 120 days of community service and take 26 anger management classes.

See It: This would have flown in NBA Jam. In real life? Not so much.

The officer, Onyebuchi Awaji, sued the Compton rapper for $12 million after claiming he was punched in the head by Game. Awaji was awarded $100,000 in damages in a default judgment.

The 1992 creator seemingly expected to get jail time for the crime, telling an audience in Russia that he’d be working on a new album called Westside Story from behind bars and the project would be his last. The aforementioned 1992 LP cracked the top 10 of HipHopDX’s 20 Best Rap Albums Of 2016.
