GameOva Reedy, the rapper who created the viral #forthedickchallenge, has reportedly been arrested after she allegedly sent her five-year-old son to school in a Lyft - on his own.

GameOva Reedy (real name Reiona Oliver, 27,) faces a count of child desertion after the ride-booking service driver instead brought the juvenile to the St. Bernard Parish Sheriff’s Office, the agency told the New Orleans Advocate.

Reedy allegedly summoned a ride-hailing service vehicle to a home in Chalmette and put her child in the car when the driver arrived. She then told the driver to take the child to a school in New Orleans, the Sheriff’s Office said. Reedy reportedly claimed that she was ill, and asked the driver if it was ok to send her son alone in the car.

If found guilty, she could face up to six months in prison. 


Her #forthedchallenge went viral over two years ago and high profile celebs including Cardi B, Erykah Badu, Issa Rae, and Tiffany Haddish all participated in the challenge.
