A local man rapped his way into handcuffs Thursday afternoon.

Anywyane D. Lowe, 36, was arrested for criminal trespassing as he ignored an officer and rapped while receiving a citation, according to a Dayton police report.

Police were flagged down by a Marathon gas station employee during their patrol around 12:35 p.m. Tuesday. The employee claimed that Lowe repeatedly harasses customers, begs for money and returns to the gas station after being told to leave, according to the report.

Police drove up the block from the Marathon in the 1900 block of North Main Street to confront Lowe, who was seated on his bicycle near a group of people. Police notified Lowe that he could not ride his bicycle on the sidewalk, but instead of replying, he began to rap; he appeared to be trying to impress the people nearby who recorded the song with their cellphones, read the report.
