27 year-old New Orleans bounce artist GameOva Reedy, most popular for creating the viral For the D challenge, was arrested for alleged child desertion. Deputies say she put her 5-year-old in a Lyft ride service car alone.
According to Sheriff James Pohlmann through CBS News 4 WWL-TV, the driver said he went to the residence and the woman, who was later identified as Reiona “GameOva Reedy” Oliver. Oliver placed the child in the vehicle and said the child would be riding alone. When the driver told Oliver he couldn’t transport the child without an adult, Ms. Oliver allegedly walked back inside of the house and would not come back out.
In a since deleted video on an Instagram account believed to belong to Oliver, the woman says that she put her child in a Lyft because she was sick and her child needed to go to school. She claimed that she had been told that was okay to do.
The driver ultimately took the child to the sheriff’s office in Arabi and deputies arrested Reedy at the Chalmette home.
Oliver was taken into custody at the St. Bernard Parish Prison. In Louisiana, child desertion is a misdemeanor that can carry up to six months in prison.
