Cypress Hill Bro Sues Grand Theft Auto For Copying His Life

A backup singer for Cypress Hill, Michael “Shagg” Washington, is suing Rockstar Games for $250 million. According to Washington, the designers behind Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas talked to him in 2003 about his life growing up around gangs and riding bicycles. The suit says he’s never played the game, but after hearing about it from his nephew, it dawned on him that the game’s main character, Carl “CJ” Johnson, looked and sounded a lot like him. He wants $250 million for “for fraud, misappropriation of likeness and infringement.” (via Tech Dirt)
