Game won't play the game

The Game has refused a plea deal over charges that he pretended to be a policeman last year. If he'd copped to the bargain, the time he'd served waiting for the case to come up would have meant he could go free. But his attorney Jeffrey Lichtman said no deal:

"Why should he plead guilty to bogus charges for a non-jail sentence if he's innocent," Lichtman said outside court. "And he is innocent. It's rare that I have a 100 percent innocent defendant, but this is one."

We're hoping that Lichtman's public statement that normally his clients are at least a little guilty doesn't affect the rest of the cases he has to deal with.
