Meek Mill’s Assault Case Gets Dropped

Back in March, Meek Mill was charged with misdemeanor assault after allegedly getting into an altercation with two employees at St. Louis International Airport. Now, it is reported that Meek just scored a W after his lawyers got the case thrown out.

According to TMZ, Meek’s attorney, Joe Tacopina, told the media outlet that Meek was able to work out a deal with prosecutors to have the case dismissed if he did some community service, which he completed at the Veterans Association in Philadelphia. One of the airport victims explained the situation to Billboard. “I was like, ‘What’s up, Meek? Can I get a pic?’ He was like ‘nah,’ and I was just like ‘how y’all do us like this and we the fans, and y’all don’t show us love? You too good to speak?”

The exchange didn’t go well with Meek’s camp and led to a physical altercation. “Two dudes walked up on me and was like ‘You still trying to fight?’ I’m at work I’m just defending myself. They threw the first punch then after that, it was self-defense.”

The news comes after the “Whatever You Need” rapper took a deal in his reckless driving arrest in New York City. As TMZ reports, the DA’s office states the Philly native accepted a deal that will erase the arrest from his record if he can go six months without getting arrested. He also agreed to complete 30 hours of community service, with 20 hours already completed.

Meek recently bounced back after releasing his 3rd studio album, Wins & Losses, following the 2015 release of his hit album Dreams Worth More Than Money. The 19-track album also includes features from Chris Brown, Young Thug, Teyana Taylor, Rick Ross, Lil Uvi Vert, and Quavo.
