Just when you thought it was safe to terrorize kids at the mall: Hip-hop star The Game ran afoul of the law when he showed up for autographs at a North Carolina shopping mall wearing a mask. The 25-year-old Compton-born rapper was taken into custody and charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest after allegedly uttering a slew of profanities and ignoring a police order to remove the mask.
“I got arrested for signing autographs,” he told local TV station WFMY. “Signing a little girl’s autograph got me arrested. They thought I was Rodney King, man. It was a case of mistaken identity.”
I’m curious about what kind of mask this was. I’m guessing the police mistook him for either the WolfMan or Dracula, which would explain why they tried to drive a stake through his heart. It’s like that one Halloween I got arrested for dressing up as Pee-Wee-Herman. Of course the police said they arrested me because I was masturbating in the middle of the Finding Nemo matinee, but I knew the real reasons.
