Rapper Casanova, arrested in New York City in a gang-related federal organized crime case, faces disciplinary charges over a dance challenge video posted on social media.
The 34-year-old rapper, whose legal name is Caswell Senior, is being sanctioned by Westchester County Jail officials after a woman filmed him accepting the so-called Junebug challenge during a video visit, the Journal News reported.

The challenge asks TikTok users to perform a series of movements in the strangest position they can imagine. The woman recorded Casanova dancing in prison and posted it on Instagram, the newspaper reported.
Westchester County’s prison superintendent Joseph Spano said correctional officers withdrew Casanova’s video tour privileges because it was prohibited to record videos and take photos while on a virtual tour.
“I’m happy to say we don’t have a lot of problems with video tours because inmates know it’s a privilege, not a right,” said Spano.
Casanova is again charged with not wearing a mask, authorities said.
On Sunday, an email was sent to Casanova’s lawyer asking for a comment.
Casanova was one of 18 alleged members of the gang of the untouchable gorilla Stone Nation who was indicted in December in a series of crimes in New York and elsewhere in New York state. Casanova has pleaded not guilty of plotting to commit organized crime, conspiracy to distribute controlled substances, and possession of firearms.
