Arresting Cop In Meek Mill Case Suspected Of Racial Bias & Abuse

Postado Fevereiro 15, 2018

Moreover, included on the list is Officer Reginald V. Graham; the 2007 arresting officer in Meek's gun and drug charges case; that which he violated probation for a year ago and is now imprisoned for.

Meek Mill is seeking to be released from prison after claiming that the police officer who arrested him is corrupt.

Consequently, multiple stars including JAY-Z, Super Bowl champions The Philadelphia Eagles and Olympic snowboarder Tit Stante previously expressed their support for Meek. As we've reported, the rapper's been on probation ever since then, and he's now in prison for violating that probation. Jerold Gibson claimed he was present for the 2007 arrest and contradicted many points made by Graham during Mill's trial. Gibson says Meek merely took a gun out of his waistband to discard it, according to the docs. Walker also claimed that Graham fabricated the probable cause for search warrants and lied about the justification for warrantless searches.

Meanwhile, Jeffrey Walker's affidavit largely corroborates Gibson's statements based on experience working in the narcotics field unit with Graham from 2003 to 2005 or 2006 and then again in 2012. He retired from the force a year ago. The report said that Graham would regularly steal money during arrests and beat up suspects.

Additionally, TMZ's documents reveal Graham admitted to another officer that he was violent with Meek during his arrest more than a decade ago.

Aside from release on bond, Mill's attorneys seek a new trial if the charges aren't dismissed.
