ATLANTA (AP) — Rapper Lil Uzi Vert has been charged with reckless driving and a host of other counts after police say he and another man raced through the streets of Atlanta on dirt bikes.

Police say the 22-year-old, whose real name is Symere Woods, and another man were observed by officers riding the bikes Thursday night. They say the men rode on sidewalks, drove up a street the wrong way and crossed five lanes of traffic without using turn signals.

A police report says officers eventually caught up with them at a red light. Police say both men ditched the bikes and ran once they saw police. Police caught up with the pair and arrested them.

Woods' publicist didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
