Shocking reports by the TMZ website earlier revealed that US rapper and former Nicki Minaj bae, Meek Mill has been arrested.
The 30-year-old rapper has been charged with reckless endangerment after allegedly riding a motorbike irresponsibly in New York without a helmet.
It is learned that concerned motorists alerted the New York Police Department to a group of people who were doing wheelies and riding dangerously along the street, and Meek was arrested after being identified from social media.
Sources told the publication the hip-hop star was held for questioning in an Upper Manhattan Precinct following the alleged incident.
Meek was reportedly arrested on Thursday (17.08.17) after he was spotted on Instagram doing wheelies, riding without a helmet and posing a danger to the community on Wednesday (16.08.17), a sergeant at NYPD’s DCPI (Office of the Deputy Commissioner, Public Information) has told XXL magazine.
Footage has emerged online in which an officer asks Meek – whose real name is Robert Rihmeek Williams – if he was “riding around on a motorcycle yesterday?”
The officer continues: “Yesterday. I got pictures of you, I got a video of you riding up and down.”
According to fans, Meek posted videos on his Instagram Stories of dirt bikes doing wheelies down the street.
Maybe Meek was letting off some steam after having a rather unpleasant kick-off to the year following his split from Nicki Minaj, who he dated for around two years from 2015 to 2017.
Speaking about their relationship, he previously said: “It was a win. I got Nicki when I was … like I came up. I always wanted Nicki my whole life. I used to talk … remember I had the rap about it. I bagged that. So that was a win of course.
“Of course breaking up with anyone you love is a loss. Period. Game time. Want me to make up a lie or something? It’s so easy to tell the truth now.”
