LOS ANGELES - Los Angeles County prosecutors will decide
his week whether to press charges against The Game, after a tweet
from the rapper's account incited a telephone flash mob that
overwhelmed the emergency phone system at a sheriff's station.

Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore said Sunday that agency
officials will send the results of their criminal investigation to
the district attorney's office in the next few days.

Whitmore says The Game, whose real name is Jayceon Terrell
Taylor, could face a number of misdemeanor counts. Deputies have
yet to make contact with the rapper.

The sheriff's department alleges The Game tweeted the Compton
station's phone number on Friday and told his 580,000 followers to
call the number if they wanted an internship. He later tweeted that
his account had been hacked.
