The off-duty cop whom The Game punched and threatened during a basketball game is now seeking a lot of money.
Although The Game turned himself in over the punch he threw at an off-duty cop during a March basketball game, it looks like things are far from over. The West Coast rapper was booked earlier this week and already posted his bail of $50,000-- but the cop he punched wants him to shell out a lot more.
The off-duty cop, name Onyebuchi Awaji, filed a $12 million lawsuit against the rapper. Does that sound about right? As we first reported, The Game got into a fight with Awaji during a Pro-Am basketball game in L.A., and the heated argument led to The Game punching the fellow player and threatening to kill him.
Awaji is now seeking a big pay day to help remedy his sufferings (physical, emotional, and financial). According to court documents, the breakdown is as follows:
Pain and suffering: $1,000,000
Emotional distress: $1,000,000
Medical expenses (to date): $50,000
Medical expenses (future): $100,000
Punitive damages: $10 million
The lawsuit was actually filed in April (a month after the incident), but Game has yet to respond. The rapper is currently awaiting trail.
