Meek Mill is suing the city of Philadelphia for what he claims was a wrongful arrest made in 2012 on Halloween where cops arrested him for refusing to let them search his vehicle when the police officers thought they smelled weed, according to TMZ. Meek Mill claims not only did that arrest make him miss his flight to Atlanta, it costed him $22k on the cancelled jet, $39K appearance fee for the Atlanta party he missed and destroyed his chance of getting a multi-million dollar shoe contract.
According to the lawsuit docs, he claims he took a hit in negotiating a $2 million deal with Puma because of the negative press which forced him to settle for a mere $650K
Meek is suing the city of Philly for false imprisonment, invasion of privacy and a undisclosed amount of money.
