Rapper The Game has been arrested in connection with a violent incident involving an off-duty police officer during a basketball match.

Los Angeles police Officer Mike Lopez said the 35-year-old artist, real name Jayceon Terrell Taylor, surrendered at the department’s Hollywood Division at noon on Monday.

Taylor, who is from Compton, allegedly threw a punch at the officer in an incident caught on video and posted online.

He posted $50,000 (£32,700) bail about an hour later.
