Meek Mill was arrested in New York on Thursday, August 17, 2017, for reckless endangerment, stemming from an incident the night before when he allegedly rode his dirt bike on the streets of Manhattan and popped wheelies while not wearing a helmet, according to a New York Police Department spokesperson.

The 30-year-old rapper (born Robert Rihmeek Williams), was charged with one count of reckless endangerment on Thursday night after performing the politically charged tune “YBA (Young Black America)” with The-Dream on “The Tonight Show.”

According to Billboard, Mill was arrested around 10:15 p.m. Thursday after police saw an Instagram video from Wednesday night that purportedly showed him riding his dirt bike in an unsafe manner on the streets of Upper Manhattan.

WABC reported that a 911 call from a witness brought police out to the intersection of West 207th Street and Sherman Ave. around 8:23 p.m. Wednesday night, but the group had dispersed by the time officers arrived. According to TMZ, officers were able to identify Meek, riding without a helmet, from videos posted on his Instagram live feed.
