Even though police tried to arrest Meek Mill he got a hand slap and then walked out of court Friday without bail. Read on…
On Thursday night, Meek was arrested at 10th Ave. and Dyckman St. in Inwood about 10:15 p.m. On Friday, prosecutors wanted Judge Gerianne Abriano to set bail at $7,500.
Too bad NONE of it stuck. Meek Mill just walked out of court with just a hand slap. Instead, this is what happened according to assistant district attorney Eli Cohen:
“The defendant has an extensive out-of-state record from Pennsylvania, including a drug conviction, a conviction for a loaded gun as well as multiple drug convictions… as well as many other contacts with the criminal justice system out of state.”
Since the arrest, Meek Mill has weighed in on the situation stating that he’s wants everyone to know he’s a “hard-working family man who didn’t do anything wrong.”
Here is what Meek said to reporters who cornered him while leaving the courthouse.
Lucky for Meek Mill, that he was able to walk out of court. Initially Mill was looking at felony charges, but skated by with 2 misdemeanors for reckless endangerment and reckless driving.
