The incident took place on March 29, 2015, when The Game and off-duty officer Onyebuchi Awaji were participating in a Pro-Am pickup basketball game. After a verbal exchange, the rapper was filmed hitting Awaji in the face. The footage never showed what happened before the incident. Game, born Jayceon Terrell Taylor, was charged with one felony count of making criminal threats and a misdemeanor charge for assault and battery.

On Monday (Feb. 6), the 37-year-old accepted the deal which suspends his six-month jail sentence and gives him three years of probation, 120 hours of community service, and 26 anger management sessions. He also pleaded no contest to stealing a camera from a photographer who filmed him being served for the assault.

Game hasn’t commented on the matter. Instead, he’s been proudly showing off his daddy duties. While praising his daughter, the rapper shared his thoughts on adoption. “The love I have for my daughter & sons should not be taken lightly,” he captioned a photo of himself and his daughter California Dream Taylor. “I’m strongly thinking about adopting a child a month from different places all over the world just to assist in areas left void by these bum n****s out here.”
