Rapper Meek Mill takes deal to toss charges after NYC bike wheelie stunt

Rapper Meek Mill took a deal Wednesday to drop charges stemming from a dirt bike wheelie stunt in Inwood that was uploaded to Instagram.

The 30-year-old “We Ball” performer, whose real name is Robert Rihmeek Williams, was charged with reckless endangerment and reckless driving in the 10th Ave. and Dyckman St. incident on Aug. 17.

Mill’s case will be dismissed after six months of good behavior under the deal he struck with prosecutors in Manhattan Criminal Court.

He must also complete 30 hours of community service but he has already done about a third of the time, prosecutors said.

“He clearly was singled out because he’s a rapper, he’s a celebrity,” his lawyer, Joe Tacopina said.

“He’s a young African-American who has been very successful in this industry and maybe members of law enforcement don’t like it but he should still be treated like anyone else.”
