US rapper The Game has been arrested in connection with a violent incident involving an off-duty police officer at a pick-up basketball game.

Los Angeles police spokesman Mike Lopez said the 35-year-old star, real name Jayceon Terrell Taylor, surrendered at the department's Hollywood Division.

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

Mr Lopez said Taylor was arrested on suspicion of making criminal threats. He posted 50,000 dollars (£32,000) bail about an hour later.
