Rapper Meek Mill Arrested For Allegedly Riding ATV Through Manhattan

Rapper Meek Mill Arrested For Allegedly Riding ATV Through Manhattan

The rapper, whose real name is Robert Williams, reportedly posted video on Instagram showing himself and others popping wheelies on dirt bikes through a Manhattan neighborhood. According to ABC7 NY, "A 911 call brought police to the intersection of West 207th Street and Sherman Avenue at about 8:23 p.m. Wednesday, but by the time officers arrived, the group had driven away". The Philly emcee was reportedly spotted earlier this week riding an illegal dirt bike around the city.

It was not immediately clear how the arrest in NY would affect Mill's probation in Philadelphia. "Cop said wasn't that you doing wheelies or whatever yesterday on the bikes", one wrote. As of Thursday morning, there were no such videos or photos on Meek's Twitter or Instagram.

Rapper Meek Mill's lawyer says prosecutors dropped a reckless endangerment charge against his client.

Only a few hours before Mill's arrest, he was on stage at 30 Rock, performing his latest single "Young Black America" on Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show.

The arrest was triggered after a video surfaced the web of Meek popping wheelies without a helmet on in the street. He ended up having to spend the night in jail so that he could stand before a judge on Friday.

Mill, who used to date female rap superstar, Nicki Minaj, has had a troubled relationship with the law in the past.
