Meek Mill Charged With 2 Misdemeanors After Popping Wheelies in NYC Traffic, Released From Jail Without Bail »

After surprisingly being arrested on felony charges on Thursday (Aug. 17), Meek Mill has been released from jail and let off with two misdemeanors.

Meek spent the night in a New York jail after being handcuffed and arrested late Thursday for reckless endangerment. He was released without bail on Friday (Aug. 18) and his lawyer was able to reduce the charges to two misdemeanor counts of reckless driving and reckless endangerment.

Following his Friday morning release, he told reporters that he had a “long night” and was in NYC to work, not to commit criminal activities.

“I’m a working man, I’m a family man, I take care of my family. I started off with a rough life. I’m at a point when I can provide for my family.”

Meek must also complete a driver improvement program. However, he told reporters that he’s already an “excellent” driver.

While shooting a music video on Wednesday (Aug. 16), the rapper was riding a dirt bike in an out of Manhattan traffic, popping wheelies, and disobeying traffic laws, all without a helmet. Police were alerted of the hazard, but Meek and his crew had already left when authorities arrived to the scene.

Investigators later found video footage of a live stream online and arrested the rapper Thursday night while he was attending a charity event for the Dyckman Basketball Clinic. Meek had also posted videos on Instagram.

Meek’s lawyer, Joe Tacopina, was mystified by his client’s arrest because he wasn’t issued a traffic ticket even though there were police on the music video set. Meek was also the only person arrested despite “eight people doing the same thing” on the video shoot.

“This is a situation where they’re targeting a young black entertainer,” Tacopina said. He told the Daily News:

“If his name was John Smith, he wouldn’t have even been arrested. You could go to 110th St. and Dyckman right now and you’ll see 10 kids popping wheelies on their bikes. Nobody gets arrested.”

According to Tacopina, nearly two dozen police cars showed up to arrest Meek at the charity event for kids. “They had 22 police cars there…I mean, I think, when John Gotti was arrested, there were about four police cars.”

Meek’s next court appearance regarding the matter is Oct. 11.

Stevie J & Joseline’s Mudslinging Results in Special Investigation in Bonnie Bella Custody Battle »

There’s a reason why people advise you to avoid fighting dirty with others, if they fight dirty with you. That’s because the only thing that usually results in is both of you rolling around in the mud.

Stevie J and Joseline Hernandez of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta have spent far too much time being pigs in the mud, launching vicious accusations and insults at each other over social media, and now the chickens have come home to roost as a judge has decided to assign a special investigator to determine who should have full custody over their baby, Bonnie Bella, reports Bossip.

Late last month, an Atlanta judge ordered a “guardian ad litem” to examine the lives, living conditions, mental health, and people close to the reality star exes in order to figure out who Bonnie Bella should live with.

The person, ID’d in court papers as Cherese Clark-Wilson, will have the right to inspect any legal, medical or social service agency records related to the family, as well as order the reality show parents to be drug tested and obtain psychiatric help.

The guardian ad litem’s job is to represent baby Bonnie Bella’s best interests – not her parents -and will eventually report her findings to the judge on their case.

And if Stevie J and Joseline’s case ends up going to trial, the guardian ad litem will have the powers of an official of the court to testify as an expert on the family’s dynamics.

If either side decides not to cooperate with the guardian, she has the authority to tell the courts and it can be used against them later on. Joseline and Stevie also have to pony up $3,500 in upfront fees for the guardian, as well as an additional hourly rate of $200.

Just in case you’ve forgotten the kinds of nasty things Joseline and Stevie have accused each other of, the short list includes:

For once, Stevie and Joseline haven’t reacted to this news over social media. Perhaps their attorneys have finally gotten through to them.

As the investigator works to sort fact from fiction, hopefully the right parent who is best suited to raise Bonnie is chosen. Because that baby deserves a fair shot, even if her parents can’t be bothered to set aside ego, pride and greed to ensure that is the case.
