Rapper 'The Game' Arrested
UPDATED: 6:20 pm EST November 17, 2006

NEW YORK -- The rapper known as The Game has been arrested for allegedly impersonating an undercover police officer, authorities said.

At around 10:30 p.m. Thursday, Jayceon Taylor, the hip-hop star known to his fans as The Game, flagged down a Lincoln Town Car at 56th Street and 7th Avenue, police said.

The driver of the taxi, Muhammed Butt, said that The Game claimed to be an undercover policeman and told him to race through several traffic lights on Lexington Avenue, police said.

Police officers pulled over the taxi at 43rd Street and 6th Avenue for driving erratically, at which point the driver told them that his passenger was an undercover officer. After running a check, the officers found that that was not the case.

Idiot.

I love the phrase "caught a case." Like there's this criminal prosecution flu floating around, you were just minding your own business and -BOOM- you caught it.

Did I say "idiot" already?

Rapper's business partner charged with laundering gang money

Rapper's business partner charged with laundering gang money
Friday, November 17, 2006

A partner in an Atlantic City recording studio launched by well-known rapper The Game was charged today with laundering more than a $100,000 for the 9 Tre Gangsters, the state’s bloodiest street gang, authorities said.

John “Johnny Hooks” Abbey, 38, was taken into custody as State Police executed search warrants at the recording studio, Black Wall Street East, and at a construction company and house he owns in Little Egg Harbor, said state Division of Criminal Justice Director Gregory Paw.

Abbey was charged with first-degree racketeering conspiracy and a Superior Court judge ordered him held in lieu of $750,000 bail, Criminal Justice spokesman Peter Aseltine said. If convicted, Abbey faces up to 20 years behind bars.

“The investigation has led us to various financial tools used by the gang to finance their operations and to move proceeds of their crime,” Paw said. “It was a significant issue for us to learn ... how they have infiltrated legitimate businesses and used sophisticated techniques to finance their endeavors.”

The arrest marks the latest chapter in the state’s attempt to stamp out the 9 Tre, a faction of the Bloods street gang that authorities have said deals heroin, cocaine and guns in communities from one end of the state to the other, including Newark, Trenton and Atlantic City. The State Police began their investigation more than a year ago after one of the gang’s alleged enforcers was charged with killing a Newark special police officer and last July arrested 41 alleged leaders of the 9 Tre.

Authorities hope the search warrants executed at the Black Wall Street East studio and Viper Construction, both of which Abbey has a stake in, will turn up business records indicating the exact scope of Abbey’s involvement with the gang, officials said.

Abbey describes himself on his Internet profile on MySpace.com as having more than 20 years of construction and financial management experience, including doing renovations for several national chain stores. In addition, he also has ownership stakes in Black Wall Street East, 16 Bars magazine and Livelihood Entertainment. Black Wall Street East, which rapper The Game opened as an East Coast studio for his Los Angeles-based company, is a customized state-of-the-art facility, according to AllHipHop.com.

The Game, who released a new album this week, hit multi-platinum with his first album, The Documentary, and is well known for his feud with star rapper 50 Cent.

'Web rage' pickaxe attacker jailed

'Web rage' pickaxe attacker jailed
By David Sapsted
Last Updated: 1:28am GMT 18/11/2006


The first person to be charged with a "web rage" attack was jailed for two and a half years today.    

Tempers flared after Paul Gibbons, 47, and John Jones, 43, exchanged insults in an Internet chatroom, an Old Bailey judge was told.

After tracing Mr Jones to his home address in Clacton, Gibbons armed himself with a pickaxe handle and, accompanied by a man with a machete, travelled 70 miles to the Essex seaside town in December 2005.

When they arrived, Mr Jones, whose girlfriend and three children were in the house, opened the door holding a knife for protection.

A fight broke out in which Mr Jones was disarmed and then beaten with the pickaxe handle and cut with his own knife.

Gibbons fled after Mr Jones's girlfriend called for help. Mr Jones suffered cuts to his head, neck and hands.

An earlier hearing was told that Gibbons, from Southwark, south London, and Mr Jones had encountered each other in a chatroom called Islam 10 because they both had an interest in the Muslim faith.

Things started to go wrong when Gibbons accused Mr Jones of spreading rumours about him.

"There was an exchange of views between the victim and the defendant which were threatening on both sides," Ibitayo Adebayo, prosecuting, said.

Jailing Gibbons, who has a record of violence, Judge Richard Hawkins told him: "It is accepted by the prosecution that Mr Jones taunted you and dared you to go to his house where you would be greeted with weapons."

Gibbons, who is unemployed, pleaded guilty last month to unlawful wounding after the prosecution agreed not to proceed with charges of attempted murder and threats to kill.

After the attack, it was found that Gibbons had boasted about what he was going to do on the Internet.

Jonathan Green, defending, said that Mr Jones had given the impression of being the innocent victim but his web blog "painted a different picture".

He said that Mr Jones had been the first to initiate physical confrontation.

Mr Green added that there was a misconception that anything said in chatrooms was anonymous, leading to people writing things that they otherwise would not dream of saying.

Det Sgt Jean-Marc Bazzoni, of Essex Police, said that the case demonstrated the importance of protecting one's identity on the Internet.

"Mr Jones had posted pictures of his family on the web and had chatted to Gibbons on an audio link," he said.

"It demonstrates how easily other users can put two and two together and also shows how children could also find themselves in danger."

Rocker Doherty arrested again on drugs grounds
Sun Nov 19, 7:19 AM ET

Troubled rocker Pete Doherty, the boyfriend of supermodel Kate Moss, was released on bail after being arrested on suspicion of possessing crack cocaine, police have said.

The Babyshambles singer, no stranger to drugs charges, was nabbed by officers after driving his car in an erratic fashion near his east London home at around 8:20 am on Saturday.

Two other people in the vehicle were also arrested on suspicion of drug possession. Police sources said Moss was not involved.

The trio, all released from Bethnal Green police station pending analysis of "substances recovered", must return in December.

Doherty's drug addiction has been well-documented in British newspapers.

DRIVING 100+ MPH IN AN ORANGE LAMB WILL ATTRACT THE PO-PO

49ers' Bryant arrested on DUI charges

By KIM CURTIS, Associated Press Writer
Tue Nov 21, 10:29 PM ET

SAN FRANCISCO - San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Antonio Bryant was arrested on reckless and drunken driving charges after his orange Lamborghini was seen speeding faster than 100 mph on a freeway.

Bryant, 25, was arrested Sunday night on suspicion of misdemeanor charges of reckless driving, driving under the influence and resisting arrest, police Capt. Kevin Raffaelli said.

An officer entering U.S. Highway 101 saw Bryant speed past and tried unsuccessfully to catch him, Raffaelli said. He radioed another officer who pulled over Bryant.

Bryant showed "signs and symptoms" of being drunk, and he was uncooperative, combative and verbally abusive, Raffaelli said. He refused to step out of the car, he said.

The officers were forced to use leather restraints to put Bryant in a seated position with his legs straight and his hands cuffed behind his back, Raffaelli said.

Bryant was booked into the San Mateo County jail early Monday morning and released a few hours later on his own recognizance. He is scheduled to appear in court Dec. 28, according to San Mateo County sheriff's Lt. Lisa Williams.

Aaron Salkin, a spokesman for the 49ers, said the team was aware of the arrest, but declined to comment further.

The arrest came hours after the 49ers recorded their biggest win of the season, a 20-14 victory over the division-leading
Seattle Seahawks.

Bryant signed a four-year, $15 million deal with 49ers in March.

Rumblings about Bryant's testy, prickly nature have followed the Miami native since his days at Pittsburgh, where he won the Biletnikoff Award as the nation's top college receiver.

He infamously blew up at Dallas Cowboys head coach Bill Parcells at a preseason practice in 2004, throwing a sweaty jersey at him during an argument. He took anger management classes and was traded to Cleveland a few months later.

Last year with the Browns, he set career highs of 69 catches for 1,009 yards.

Tracy Morgan's DUIs

'30 Rock' Star Charged With DWI
Nov 28 1:48 PM US/Eastern   
By SAMUEL MAULL
Associated Press Writer

NEW YORK                     

Tracy Morgan, a former "Saturday Night Live" regular who co-stars on NBC's "30 Rock," was arrested Tuesday in Upper Manhattan on drunken driving charges, the district attorney's office said.

The 38-year-old comedian was stopped around 4:30 a.m. while driving a Cadillac Escalade on the Henry Hudson Parkway near West 158th Street, said Edison Alban, a spokesman for District Attorney Robert Morgenthau.

Police reported that Morgan smelled of alcohol and that he later failed a breathalyzer test at the 28th Precinct station house, Alban said.

Alban didn't yet know the name of Morgan's attorney.

Morgan's publicist in Los Angeles didn't immediately return a call seeking comment.

Alban said Morgan was to be arraigned later in Manhattan's state Supreme Court on charges of driving while intoxicated and driving while impaired.

Last Dec. 2, Morgan was arrested in Hollywood, Calif., on impaired driving charges after police stopped him for speeding. Authorities there said his blood-alcohol level was 0.13 percent, over the legal limit of 0.08 percent.

On Feb. 17, he pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor charge of drunken driving. He was sentenced to 36 months' probation, fined $390 and ordered to attend an alcohol education program, authorities said.

Morgan was a "Saturday Night Live" cast member from 1996 to 2003. He left the show to star in the short-lived "The Tracy Morgan Show."

Snoop Dogg is arrested
From a Times Staff Writer
November 29, 2006

Rapper-actor Snoop Dogg was arrested Tuesday evening by Burbank police on four felony drug- and weapons-related charges just after he finished taping an appearance on "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno."

The arrest of the performer, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, stemmed from an investigation after his apprehension last month by police at Bob Hope Airport in Burbank on suspicion of being a felon in possession of a gun and of transporting marijuana.

He also was charged earlier this month with knowingly possessing a deadly weapon, a collapsible police baton found in his computer bag, as he was about to board a plane at John Wayne Airport in Orange County in September.

Burbank Police Sgt. Kevin Grandalski said Broadus was served with a search warrant after 6 p.m. in the 400 block of Bob Hope Drive, just outside the NBC studios.

He said investigators searched the suspect, his car and his home in Diamond Bar, prompting them to file charges of his being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm, possession of cocaine, possession of marijuana for sale and having a false compartment in a vehicle.

Grandalski said Broadus was expected to post his bail, which was set at $60,000.

I kinda like Snoop.  But he's gotta be pretty dumb to keep on getting arrested.
What happened to the three strikes and your a$$ is out law?  Don't they have
that out in Cali anymore?  Shouldn't he be on lock-down?
