NYPD Arrest Rapper Chucky73 for Kosciuszko Bridge Shutdown

The police have arrested the well-known rapper Chucky73 for allegedly taking part in a party that shut down the Kosciuszko Bridge in November.

Adel Mejia, also known as Chucky73, was arrested by officers from the NYPD108 Police Precinct this morning for reckless endangerment and other charges, sources said.

His arrest stems from a high-profile bridge shutdown when about a dozen men got out of their cars at around 6 p.m. on Nov. 14 and started rapping to loud music while filming themselves. Some of the cars were doing doughnuts, while blocking traffic.

Video of the incident shows traffic brought to a complete halt.

The incident sparked outrage at the time.

“You know, unfortunately, there’s no shortage of idiots these days and blocking a bridge and the inconvenience and the potential danger it can cause to me is reckless at the minimum,” former Police Commissioner Dermot Shea told NY1 following the incident.

Eric Adams took to twitter at the time to condemn the incident.

“Incidents like this damage our brand as a city, disrespect New Yorkers and endanger visitors and residents alike.”

The 108 Police detective squad conducted the investigation.

Life in prison for a traffic jam? I’m sorry you were so offended.

Yes, life, no parole.

You obviously don’t get it. This is a lot more than a “traffic jam”. It’s stupidity at the highest level, even beyond…


If your husband, wife or child was in an ambulance trying to get to a hospital and were using this bridge at the time, AND died because of this GOON and his idiot friends, you’d want WAY worse for a punishment!!!!


not good enough. need to put these criminals to hard prison labor to rebuild our infrastructure.


The guy wins no matter what, he’s getting street cred for a run-in with the law, for sticking it to the sheeple who just wanted to use the bridge, and all he’s going to get is a slap on the wrists and a misdemeanor.

He’s a bad man, but i do appreciate the cojones of pulling something like that off and walking away scott-free.


Kudos to the sunnysidepost for discouraging such attention-seeking stunts by posting the guy’s picture, giving his name multiple times, and providing the video. Maybe give the link to his website and social media accounts too, in order to really discourage such ego-maniacal behavior in the future. Bravo SSP!

Good job, NYPD 108. Next target: the fleet of ATVs that take over Queens Boulevard, often on Sundays.


Catch em, seize the vehicles and dispose of them. When children misbehave you need to take away their toys or they won’t learn anything.
