Rapper The Game could face criminal charges after he tweeted the phone number of the sheriff’s station in Compton, CA — but told people it was the number to call for an internship — causing the station’s phone lines to become overrun with calls and delaying emergency services.

The calls began around 5:20 PM PT, with most callers hanging up when they heard it was a sheriff’s station … and the rest asking how they could intern for The Game.

Deputies eventually discovered The Game’s tweets and Sheriff’s Capt. Mike Parker tweeted at him to put an end to it (see above). The Game eventually responded (also above) and deleted the tweets.

The calls ended around 8:00 PM, but Capt. Parker said it was unclear how many people with legitimate calls could not get through during that time.

According to the Sheriff’s Department, they plan on turning over a complaint to the District Attorney’s office to possibly file charges — including delaying or obstructing a peace officer in the performance of their duties.

The porn star from Charlie Sheen‘s hotel meltdown STILL wants to embarrass and humiliate the Warlock — and she’s hoping she’ll be allowed to do it by being on the dais at the “Comedy Central Roast.”

Capri Anderson‘s manager, Gina Rodriguez, tells TMZ she’s pushing hard to get Capri on the show  … and has appealed to the Roastmaster General himself, Jeff Ross.

Rodriguez says they approached Ross with the idea this week –and he told them he was “interested.”

Maybe she’ll present him with the watch she allegedly put in her vagina and smuggled out of the hotel room last year — proving the point, it really can take a lickin’ and keep on tickin’.

Former Queens of the Stone Age bassist Nick Oliveri has been charged with four felonies after a tense standoff with a S.W.A.T. team in L.A. last month — and now faces up to 15 years in prison.

As we previously reported, Oliveri was arrested on July 12th — after a fight with his girlfriend escalated into a four-hour standoff with police. Oliveri was booked on felony domestic violence — and after police searched his home, they found a fully-loaded rifle.

But that’s not all they found — according to the charging docs, police also found cocaine and methamphetamines.

Oliveri is charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance with a firearm, 2 counts of possession of a controlled substance, and one misdemeanor count of resisting, obstructing or delaying a peace officer.

If convicted on all counts, the 39-year-old faces a max of 15 years in prison.

Canter’s Deli
— one of the most famous restaurants in all of Los Angeles — is honoring Jani Lane the best way they know how this weekend … by having a sale on cherry pie.

The delicatessen, which has been open since 1931, is just as well known for their baked goods as they are for their corned beef sandwiches. So on Saturday and Sunday, they are selling slices of cherry pie for just $1.00 each.
