Rapper Quando Rondo racks up DUI, reckless driving charges in Georgia

Rapper Quando Rondo has been arrested in Georgia on charges of drunk driving and reckless driving, and has already faced felony charges in state and federal court.

The 24-year-old rapper, whose real name is Tikian Bowman, was arrested by police in his hometown of Savannah on Tuesday on two misdemeanor charges, according to Chatham County jail records. He was released on $4,600 bail.

Bowman was indicted last year on state drug and gang charges in Chatham County Superior Court and federal drug charges in U.S. District Court.

Bowman’s attorney, Jonah Pine, told WTOC-TV that the charges stem from an accident last July in which Bowman crashed his car into another vehicle. Prosecutors said paramedics at the scene gave Bowe drugs used to treat opioid overdoses.

Pine said prosecutors are making “additional efforts to heap more nonsense on Quando Rondo.”

The accident occurred less than a month after Bowman was indicted in the state case. Prosecutors accused Bowman of being the manager of an illegal street gang and conspiring with others to distribute marijuana and purchase pills for the opioid hydrocodone.

Federal prosecutors filed their own case in December, charging Bowman with conspiracy to possess and distribute drugs, including methamphetamine, fentanyl, cocaine and marijuana.
