LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department has opened a criminal investigation after the rapper The Game tweeted the number for the sheriff’s Compton station, prompting hundreds of calls and overwhelming the emergency phone system.
Sheriff’s Lt. Suzan Young says “the phones started ringing like crazy” at around 5:20 p.m. Friday.
Sheriff’s Capt. Mike Parker tells the Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/oGFHO1) that The Game told his 580,000 followers that if they wanted an internship with him, they should call the number. Parker says all of the phone lines were jammed for more than two hours.
He says sheriff’s investigators are documenting the actions in a criminal complaint and plan to forward to the district attorney’s office for possible criminal charges.
