Rapper 50 Cent's first pitch was so bad that even the New York police want in on the fun.

On Friday's Good Morning America, 50 Cent talked about his terrible first pitch before the Mets' game on May 27. He even tried to blame the wild throw on Curtis Jackson, which is his real name. 

Then 50 Cent caught everyone by surprise when he revealed he was pulled over by a New York cop and, instead of getting a ticket, received some ribbing.

The rapper also denied that the blooper was a publicity stunt, saying his pitch "slipped."
