Meek Mill could be going away for a few years for his recent troubles with the law, TMZ reports.

The Philly rapper is scheduled to go to court Monday for “serious probation violations in his drugs and weapons case.”

Meek’s court appearance is related to his arrests for a fight at a St. Louis airport in March, and recklessly driving his motorcycle in New York City.

Meek’s attorney Joe Tacopina told TMZ the Dreamchaser was ordered to complete community service to have his St. Louis airport case dismissed. Meek performed his community service at Philadelphia’s Veterans Association.

Meek took a deal that will get the reckless driving charge expunged from his record if he can go six months without getting arrested again, TMZ reports. He also has to perform 30 hours of community service. Meek is almost finished, as he already did 20 hours.

“This swift resolution vindicates Meek and clearly shows how outrageous the police department’s conduct is in this case,” Meek’s attorney Joe Tacopina told TMZ.

Meek was originally charged with a felony, but got it reduced to two misdemeanor charges.

Meek received three months of house arrest and six years probation in February 2016.

Common Pleas Judge Genece Brinkley ordered Meek to serve 90 days on house arrest and six years probation, effective March 1, for violating probation for a 2009 drug and gun conviction.

Meek Mill spent nearly five months in prison in 2014 for violating his probation. He was freed in December 2014 a month ahead of his expected Jan. 11, 2015 release date.

If Meek is found guilty of violating his probation, he could be sentenced to two years in prison.
