West Coast rapper Game reportedly had to dig into his pockets and pay thousands of dollars to post bail after surrendering himself to police this week.

According to reports, Game turned himself in and became a free man in a matter of hours Monday (June 8).

TMZ broke the story … an arrest warrant was issued last week when the D.A. charged Game with one count of making criminal threats back in March. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … the rapper surrendered to LAPD just after noon on Monday, and was released 54 minutes later — once he posted his $50,000 bail. (TMZ)

Reports last week revealed a judge issued an arrest warrant for Game’s arrest.

The L.A. County D.A. charged Game this week with one count of making criminal threats, according to docs. The threat came when he allegedly said, “I’m going to kill you” to an off duty LAPD officer. TMZ broke the story … Game and the cop got into it back in March while they were playing in a league hoops game. Even though you can clearly see Game punch the guy in the video we obtained … he was NOT charged with battery. Our law enforcement sources point out the punch would have just been a misdemeanor — as opposed to the felony for threats. (TMZ)
