Rapper 'The Game' to face charges over sheriff's station No. tweet for internship

August 14, 2011 - New York

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department is considering pressing charges against rapper 'The Game' after he posted the station's telephone number on Twitter, saying he was looking for interns.

According to TMZ, the step from the rapper promoted hundreds of followers to call, and thus tying up phone lines and delaying emergency services.

Dispatchers and deputies received innumerous calls for two hours. While most inquirers reportedly hung up after learning they had called a sheriff's department, some pressed on, asking how they could intern for 'The Game'.

The original tweet containing the phone number of the Sheriff's Department was removed Friday night.
