Police today said they aren't going to arrest the rapper Game for an alleged assault at a Hollywood club early on Tuesday morning.The rapper showed up at Hollywood Police Station today to tell police that he didn't throw any punches in Tuesday night's scuffle. After interviewing witnesses and taking a look at the shaky partial footage of the incident, the police told TMZ that they bought Game's story.

The rapper ALSO didn't get arrested, after he sent out a tweet with the phone number of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Station. Authorities considered charging him with three misdemeanors for jamming their phone lines, until he went on CNN last week to apologize.

So if you're at home keeping score, that means the rapper formerly known as The Game has not gotten arrested twice in a little over a week.

Which is good, because it's hard to promote an album that came out in said week, if you're too busy dealing with a bunch of publicity from an arrest. Amirite?
