T.I. and The Game were involved in a precarious standoff with the LAPD Wednesday morning!
Both rappers were hanging at El Lay hotspot The Supperclub when a couple members of their entourage showed up. When they weren't allowed entrance, the two men apparently threw down with security- and were hurt pretty badly!
When The Game and T.I. heard about this, they left the club to get their pals' backs- only to mistake the police on the scene for the aggressors!
That's when their entire posse stood off against a squad of police, ready to brawl! Thank goodness that didn't happen!
We're not sure what exactly stopped the escalation, but we're awfully glad it ended peacefully! Maybe they talked through the misunderstanding, and cooler heads prevailed?
As for the two men beaten by the club's security, they were reportedly taken into custody but were reportedly released after no one pressed charges.
The Supperclub released the following statement regarding the incident:
"The events that happened in the parking lot behind Supperclub Los Angeles in the early hours of Wednesday morning are severely disheartening, leaving our company and organization frustrated, and our Hollywood neighbors saddened.
An unfortunate escalation between an angry onlooker who was denied entry to Supperclub, and a rogue security officer who took matters too far, led to an untenable altercation which represented the worst in all of us.
Although T.I. and The Game were in the parking lot during this time, they were not directly involved with this incident. Community leader "Big U", of Developing Options, was in fact, not arrested, contrary to false reports, and had no part in this altercation. The third party security company that was hired for this outside promotional event, is not a part of Supperclub Los Angeles, and will never be booked by Supperclub, or the venue’s outside promotional vendors again.
The owners, management and family of Supperclub vehemently condemn this act, and any act of violence, as it directly contradicts its core philosophies of celebration of the arts, food and culture."
