The Game has appeared in court after being charged with impersonating a police officer.
Police said the star told a cab driver he was an undercover officer in 2006, ordering him to run several red lights.
The rapper, real name Jayceon Taylor, insisted he was innocent. He has been given a conditional discharge at Manhattan's Criminal Court.
That means if the star is not arrested again within six months, the charge will be dismissed and the case closed, reports BBC.
