The California rapper, the Game, could potentially face criminal charges for starting a telephone flash mob.
According to AceShowbiz, Game tweeted the phone number of a sheriff station in Compton, Calif. and told his 580,000 followers to call the number with the promise of an "internship" with his Black Wall Street label. The tweet caused a telephone flash mob that delayed emergency services.
"Call @wackstar for internship....... Lol he answering all bws phones today," the tweet read.
Calls came in for about three hours after the tweet on Friday. Most people reportedly hung up after hearing that it was a sheriff's office.
According to The San Francisco Gate, Game later posted that his account was hacked and that it was an accident.
"@wackstar hacked my Twitter earlier..... Arrest him police... He is to blame," Game tweeted.
He then added, "Yall can track a tweet down but cant solve murders! Dat was an accident but maybe now yall can actually do yall job !!!!"
The Game's 2005 debut album, The Documentary, entered the charts at the top and sold 586,000 units in the first week, according to his website.
