The Game Must Pay Up for Punching an Off-Duty Cop in the Face

In 2015, the Game started that year off on a sour note when he punched an off-duty police officer during a pick-up basketball game. In 2016, the Compton rhymer was ordered to pay up for sucker punching the cop.

According to TMZ, a judge ordered the Game to pay the victim, Onyebuchi Awaji, $100,000 in a default judgment for injuries the police officer suffered at the hands of the “How We Do” rapper.

Awaji sued the Documentary 2 creator claiming that the punch to the head he received may have caused brain damage. Game’s rep maintains that he struck Awaji in self-defense after he threatened the rapper with a gun. However, the video (see above) shows otherwise.

The monetary judgment breaks down like this — $60,000 to the cop for his injuries and an extra $40,000 as a warning to Game to never do it again.

This isn’t the only judgment that Game has to pay. Last year, the 36-year-old rapper was ordered to pay his rap rival 40 Glocc $3,000 for assaulting him in a 2012 confrontation. Game got lucky in that case because 40 Glocc originally asked for $4.5 million in damages.

Reps for the Game had no comment on any of his legal matters.
