Consequently, after his arrest in August for reckless driving in New York City, Meek Mill accepted a deal from the District Attorney’s office this week — and should he steer clear of further trouble, it’ll be wiped off for good.
Moreover, the 30-year-old agreed to go six months without ending up in cuffs again, in addition to 30 hours of community service — of which he’s already completed 20.
Furthermore, the Philly native’s attorney, Joe Tacopina tells TMZ:
“This swift resolution vindicates Meek and clearly shows how outrageous the police department’s conduct is in this case.”
Consequently, the Wins & Losses rapper initially faced felony charges for popping wheelies in the streets of NYC while shooting a music video.
However, luckily for him, prosecutors later decided against pursuing them.
Additionally, upon his August arrest, Tacopina stated:
“In my 26 years in this system, both as a prosecutor and a defense lawyer, I’ve really never seen a case like this. I really haven’t. You know, you have a situation where a guy literally popped a wheelie for 10 seconds on the street with no one else around, and the police were there. That’s very important. The police were there and saw it that night, and they didn’t arrest him. They didn’t charge him with reckless endangerment. They didn’t even give him a traffic ticket.”
In addition, he pointed out that his client was the only person arrested, despite the eight other people “doing the same thing” with him.
“What’s very telling about the police department’s intent here and how they viewed this is that they had 22 police cars [to] arrest Meek Mill on a traffic violation. “I mean, I think when John Gotti was arrested, there were about four police cars. It just goes to tell you what’s in their state of mind. I mean, it was ridiculous. Absolutely ridiculous.”
