Game is being forced to open up his wallet for five police officers in Greensboro, North Carolina. MyFox8 says on Tuesday a North Carolina appeals court upheld a 2010 ruling that awards five-million dollars to five officers who filed a defamation lawsuit against the rap star. The suit was filed in 2006 against Game, whose real name is Jayceon Taylor, and Bungalo Records, Inc. The lawsuit alleges that the officers were slandered and libeled by having their identities wrongfully used in a documentary called “Stop Snitchin’ Stop Lyin’.”” The officers’ appearance in the documentary stems from Game’s arrest in October of 2005. The rapper and his entourage were asked to leave a North Carolina mall for reportedly causing a disturbance. The police were eventually called and Game was arrested on charges such as criminal trespassing and disorderly conduct.
