How many rappers have we seen put themselves into the most stupidest stuff? The Game is no exception. Dude got knocked for impersonating a cop. Lucky for him, he only received a slap on the wrist. According to the Associated Press, Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Marc Whiten granted the rapper a conditional discharge, meaning that if he isn't arrested again within six months, the misdemeanor charge will be dismissed and the case file sealed.

The artist, born Jayceon Taylor, was arrested Nov. 16 after he allegedly told a cab driver that he was an undercover police officer and directed him to run several red lights. Taylor, 27, hailed the cab following his appearance on CBS' Late Show wth David Letterman. The cabbie drove about 13 blocks before he was pulled over, police said at the time. The cab driver realized they were being trailed by cops and asked who was in the car, Game recalled. The rapper said he told the driver they were the hip-hop police, and the driver decided on his own to run the red lights.

The Game’s lawyer, Jeffrey Lichtman, said it was unlikely that a cab driver, seeing his client's tattoos, would have thought he was a policeman. "I've never seen a cop with writing all over his face," said The Game, who had rejected offers of a plea deal that would have kept him out of jail in exchange for a guilty plea. He has always maintained his innocence.
