Meek Mill caught a lucky break in his reckless driving case in New York City. The Philly rapper was arrested in August for riding an illegal dirt bike in the Inwood neighborhood in Manhattan.
An NYPD spokesman told the New York Daily News they saw Meek Mill post footage of himself on Instagram popping wheelies with no helmet. Police told the New York Post that Meek put “himself and others at great risk of injury.”
Meek took a deal that will get the 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.
