Philadelphia rapper Meek Mill is now seeking monetary compensation due to an arrest that took place in his hometown back in October. The Maybach Music Group artist was arrested on October 31 after being pulled over by two Philadelphia police officers who he says had no cause to arrest him.
According to HipHopWired.com, Meek is now suing the city of Philadelphia and the two officers involved in the arrest for “civil rights violations, false imprisonment, invasion of privacy and civil conspiracy.” It is unclear exactly how much the rapper is seeking in the lawsuit.
Since Meek was in custody for what he says was nine hours, he missed a promotional appearance in Atlanta and was also forced to pay the deposit on a private jet he was unable to use. Both “the loss of numerous sponsorships and endorsement” and “the loss of plaintiff’s solitude, seclusion and privacy,” are all cited in Meek’s lawsuit against the city.
An Instagram picture which shows the rapper in custody and was reportedly posted on a social media site by one of the police officers was also vaguely mentioned in the lawsuit.
Meek Mill is currently preparing for the forthcoming release of Dreamchasers 3.
