Police say a hip-hop video shoot shut down parts of Route 66 in New Mexico last weekend because lowriders were driving around in circles as a crowd twerked in the street.
KRQE-TV in Albuquerque reports the unauthorized filming in downtown Albuquerque Sunday triggered a long block party, snarling traffic and confusing motorists.
Albuquerque police say hip-hop artist Jandro did not receive proper permits to shoot his music video.
Police say officers decided to close off parts of the Mother Road because of the lowriders and the street dancing.
Albuquerque police spokesman Tanner Tixier says about 300 people took part.
Videographer Editz Macias says his crew filming Jandro took advantage of the unexpected, spontaneous party scene by shooting footage of the festivities.
Officers issued no arrests or citations.
