Rapper The Game has appeared in a New York court to face charges of impersonating a police officer.
The Dreams hitmaker, real name Jayceon Terrell Taylor, was arrested in November (06) after a practical joke went wrong.
The Game pretended to be an undercover cop and instructed a motorist to drive through a series of red lights.
In court on Thursday (20Sep07), a judge ruled the charges against the rap star would be dismissed in six months if he stays out of trouble.
Outside court, the smiling rapper said, "I love New York, but I hate the system."
