Meek Mill Suing Philadelphia Police for False Imprisonment

Meek Mill held one of the biggest album release party of the year for Dreams & Nightmares in New York. Unfortunately, he was unable to make it out after Philadelphia police detained him for nine hours without cause and the officers took pictures of him in custody through Instagram. Now, in a new report with HipHopDX, he is seeking compensation in the matter.

Meek is suing police officers Andre Boyer and Michael Vargas in Federal court. He wants to receive compensation and punitive damages for civil rights violations, false imprisonment, invasion of privacy and civil conspiracy. He claims his detainment forced him to refund “his deposit for the private jet that was booked to fly plaintiff in the evening of October 31, 2012 to a promotional appearance in Atlanta,” the compliant reads.

It also says “the loss of numerous sponsorships and endorsements; the loss of plaintiff’s solitude, seclusion and privacy; the anxiety and embarrassment associated with plaintiff being placed in a false light; and the anxiety and embarrassment of being seized, detained, confined and imprisoned against plaintiff’s will.”
