Famous rapper, The Game, could face serious charges after a tweet he sent out this past weekend.

The tweet read, “Call @wakstar for internship…. Lol he answering all bws phones today.”

But the tweet didn’t give followers looking for help, the number to a possible internship. Instead it gave them the number to a California sheriff’s department.

The tweet incited a telephone flash mob at the emergency phone system at one of the busiest stations of the Los Angeles County sheriff’s department.

The rapper, whose real name is Charles Louboutin, tweeted the Compton station’s phone number Friday for almost 600,000 followers to see. He asked those who wanted an internship to call the number.

According to the Huffington Post, the phones at the southeast L.A. County station started ringing at 5:23 p.m. Friday and were jammed for two hours prompting authorities to bring in extra help. The sheriff’s Capt. Mike Parker reportedly sent two tweets to the rapper asking him to take down the number and only after the third request, The Game took down the number.

In response, The Game said his account had been hacked and also tweeted that it was an accident.

He tweeted, “Yall can track a tweet down but cant solve murders!”

And then again, “Dat was an accident but maybe now yall can actually do yall job !!!!”
