The Game In Trouble For Impersonating A Cop

THE GAME was recently caught playing a game -- called "impersonating a police officer."
THE GAME, whose real name is JAYCEON TAYLOR, allegedly picked up a livery cab last THURSDAY night shortly after he appeared on the "Late Show With DAVID LETTERMAN." The report alleges he flashed the driver what the cabbie thought was a badge and had him run several lights. The cab went about 13 blocks before it was pulled over, police said.
His lawyer, JEFFREY LICHTMAN, denied the accusation, saying police had been tailing his client throughout his stay in NEW YORK and that the cabbie was a terrible driver.
"This is really a new low even for the NYPD," LICHTMAN said. "It's a big joke to harass him and other members of the hip-hop community, and ultimately arresting him. Let's see how funny they think it is during the cross-examinations of this trial."
