WASHINGTON, June 7 (UPI) -- The manager of the rap group Game, Jimmy "Henchmen" Rosemond, has been sentenced to three years of unsupervised probation and a $2,500 fine for a 2005 altercation.

Rosemond was found guilty in January of assaulting a Washington, D.C., disc jockey. The assault happened when the DJ was making fun of Rosemond's cell phone earpiece during an interview with the Game.

"The judge's decision to place Mr. Rosemond on unsupervised probation was in recognition that he is and continues to be a positive influence within the community," said Rosemond's attorneys, Scott Srebnick and William Brennan in a statement, reports www.sohh.com.
