TMZ is reporting: "According to prosecutors, Meek was charged with two misdemeanors -- reckless endangerment and reckless driving. The judge released him on his own recognizance, but said he had to complete a driving improvement program before his next court date in October."
On Thursday (Aug. 17) night, Meek Mill was arrested and charged with reckless endangerment in New York City.
TMZ reports: "He was picked up by NYPD at 10:16 PM Thursday after a 911 call was made on Wednesday by witnesses who saw a group of people popping wheelies and riding dangerously down the street. Law enforcement turned to social media and were able to identify Meek, who was riding without a helmet. NYPD then took him into custody."
This news completely took everyone who heard it by surprise. We all know how much Meek loves riding his motorcycles and ATVs. So, we weren't ready for news that he got arrested for doing this, while in the city. After all, in Meek's latest Wins And Losses album, the rapper spoke about growing into a better man and making better decisions in life.
Twitter has been reacting to the Philly MC's arrest. See some tweets about it below.
