Two years ago Meek was arrested in Philly because cops said they smelled Marijuana coming from his car, but Meek refuse to let them search the vehicle.

 

He was arrested & detained but during the search cops found nothing.

 

However the whole ordeal caused Meek to not only miss his flight to a private gig--but it compromised his contract with Puma sneakers.

 

Meek is suing his hometown of Philadelphia for false imprisonment & invasion of privacy & damages.
