Rapper arrested after incident on Kosciuszko Bridge in November

NEW YORK (WABC) -- A rapper is under arrest after a group temporarily shut down the Kosciuszko Bridge in November.

The musician known as Chucky73 was arrested Tuesday after police say the stunt was staged for a music video.

Some of the footage of drivers doing doughnuts in their cars on Nov. 14 was posted onto social media.

More than a dozen men got out of their vehicles and started rapping to loud music while filming themselves, blocking the bridge that day, police said.

The rapper's real name is Adel Mejia. He is facing charges of reckless endangerment, unlawful assembly and disorderly conduct.

Jose Ortega, 35, was previously arrested in December. He was charged with reckless endangerment.
