The Dreams hitmaker, real name Jayceon Taylor, was taking part in a game with a mix of professional and amateur sportsmen at Hollywood High School on Sunday (29Mar15), when he became embroiled in a heated argument with another man and reportedly threatened his life, before punching the guy in the face.

Cops were called to investigate, but The Game left the school before officers arrived.

The alleged victim has since filed a battery report over the clash, according to TMZ.com.

The Game has yet to comment on the accusations, but it's not the first time he has encountered trouble on the basketball court - he was arrested for possession of a firearm in a school zone in 2007 following another altercation during a game. He pleaded no contest to the charge and served eight days of a 60-day sentence behind bars. He was also sentenced to community service and probation.

The Game is also fighting a $4.5 million (£2.8 million) lawsuit from fellow rapper 40 Glocc, who claims he was beaten up by the hip-hop star and his entourage during a 2012 fight in Los Angeles.
