LOS ANGELES (AP) — A rapper known by “The Game” has been arrested in connection with a violent incident involving an off-duty police officer at a pickup basketball game in March.

Los Angeles police Officer Mike Lopez says 35-year-old Jayceon Terrell Taylor surrendered at the department’s Hollywood Division at noon Monday.

Taylor allegedly threw a punch at the officer, and the incident was caught on video and posted online.

Lopez says Taylor was booked on suspicion of making criminal threats. He posted $50,000 bail about an hour later.
