Meek Mill has been ARRESTED again — the reason why will leave you shaking your head!By: Monya Fleming
Meek Mill was detained by police on Wednesday and charged with assault after an altercation at the St. Louis airport. The rapper was approached by an airport employee that wanted to take a photo with him, which apparently led to a fight.
Mill reportedly refused to pose for a photo with the employee and a fight broke out at around 3 p.m. in the ticketing lobby. St. Louis Airport Police officers responded to the scene and several people involved in the fight took off. Police detained Mill as well as a 22-year-old airport employee and 24-year-old airport employee.
Both Meek and the airport employees were charged with misdemeanor assault and given a summons to appear in court in lieu of arrest.
There was a bit of confusion as to whether or not Meek was arrested because he was spotted ordering pizza before boarding this flight.
Jeff Lea, Public Relations Manager at the St. Louis Lambert International Airport, said in a statement, "At pproximately 3 p.m., on Wednesday, March 15, St. Louis Airport Police responded to a disturbance call involving several males fighting in the Terminal 1 Ticketing Lobby at St. Louis Lambert International Airport."
"Upon arriving, several people involved in the fight fled but Police were able to detain three males ages 22, 24 and 29. The three people included two airline contract employees. The third was an airline passenger scheduled to fly out of St. Louis. The three men have been charged with Assault Prohibitive and given a summons in lieu of arrest and given a court date to answer to the charges in St. Louis County Courts."
The 29-year-old rapper posted a photo to Instagram of himself in an airplane with the caption, "Locked in the slammer nope popped up in Miami."
Mill was on his way to perform at a Spring Beak concert in Miami Beach, Florida on Thursday. The rapper also has a show on Saturday with Gucci Mane, Ty Dolla Sign and others at Stubbs in Austin, Texas for the South By Southwest music festival.
Of course, this isn't the first time Mill has been in trouble with the law. Meek, whose real name is Robert Rihmeek Williams, was arrested when he was 18 years-old for illegally possessing a firearm.
Since that time, Meek was arrested four times since that time for parole violation and another violation that led to jail time. He was released from prison in December 2014 for a probation violation and also was on house arrest.
