LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Los Angeles County sheriff’s department says The Game incited a telephone flash mob that overwhelmed the emergency phone system.

Sheriff’s Capt. Mike Parker tells the Los Angeles Times (https://lat.ms/oGFHO1) that the rapper tweeted the number of the sheriff’s Compton station Friday and told his 580,000 followers that if they wanted an internship with him, they should call the number.

Sheriff’s Lt. Suzan Young says “the phones started ringing like crazy” around 5:20 p.m. Parker says phone lines were jammed for more than two hours.

The Game could face criminal charges. Parker says investigators are documenting the actions in a criminal complaint that they plan to forward to the district attorney’s office.
