Atlanta-based rapper T.I. and West Coast MC The Game engaged in an intense standoff with the LAPD early Wednesday morning (April 30, 2014).
Apparently, when a group of “mutual acquaintances” of T.I. and The Game were denied entry into the popular nightclub, the men began arguing with security and someone threw a punch. Security then descended upon two of the men, punching and kicking them ruthlessly.
T.I. and The Game heard about the incident and they each came outside of the club to confront police.
As the scene gets tense, there are several in the crew pulling out cell phone to document the scene. Police grab hold of their billy clubs, while Tip can be heard stating to authorities, “Is this a crime scene? Y’all got a lot of people to beat up.”
But after a few moments, T.I. realizes the mistake and yells to the group, “The police didn’t do it – security did.” and that starts a whole new melee as they confront club security.

According to the videos above posted by TMZ, the rappers mistakenly believe the weapons-wielding police beat up their friends outside of the Supperclub on Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles.
The group then turns their anger towards the security detail, where more accusations and yelling ensues.
According to TMZ, the two injured men were taken to the LAPD’s Hollywood division, but no one wanted to file charges so they left.

The last thing T.I. needs is an incident with police, he’s had enough of those to last a lifetime! I give him props for maintaining his composure and standing strong in his convictions… even though he was wrong.
