Meek Mill has been arrested in New York, according to reports. He was accused by police of riding an illegal dirt bike, with no helmet, and popping wheelies.
Authorities were alerted after Meek posted a clip of his activities on Instagram.
His lawyer, Joseph Tacopina, in turn, accused police of singling him out for his fame.
He said: “That level of investigation is normally reserved for heinous crimes, not for petty offences like doing a wheelie on the street where you’re endangering no one’s life but your own”.
