Popular rapper Meek Mill was arrested due to reckless endangerment on his motorbike last night. 

The police reportedly saw him hooning in and out of traffic and pulling wheelies on Instagram - this was enough evidence to arrest him

DJ Akademiks uploaded Meek's perspective of the encounter on Youtube:

His lawyer released this statement saying why they think Mill was targeted: “That level of investigation is normally reserved for heinous crimes, not for petty offenses like doing a wheelie on the street where you’re endangering no one’s life but your own.”

It's still unclear as to why the NYPD were monitoring Mill's insta, but he was caught fair 'n square.
