According to reports, Meek has filed a federal lawsuit against the Philadelphia Police Department for “civil rights violations, false imprisonment, invasion of privacy and civil conspiracy” related to his Halloween night arrest and subsequent detention after two Philly cops pulled over his Range Rover.
“Following the vehicle stop, police officers Boyer and Vargas handcuffed plaintiff at the scene, transported him in custody to the 22nd Police District, took photographs of plaintiff which the officers posted and published, or caused to be posted and published, on Instagram and other social media websites, depicting plaintiff in police custody, held plaintiff in custody against his will in a jail cell for approximately nine (9) hours, after which time plaintiff was released on November 1, 2012, at 4:30 a.m., without being charged with any criminal activity and having caused plaintiff to miss a scheduled promotional appearance in Atlanta, Georgia.”
According to Meek, the dissemination of those pictures brought about “the anxiety and embarrassment associated with plaintiff being placed in a false light”. He is seeking an unspecified amount in punitive and compensatory damages. Good for him.
