Police from five different departments were called in to disburse a rowdy crowd that had gathered to see Meek Mill in Connecticut over the weekend.
Meek hit the stage at Club Lush, a venue that holds about 600 people in Danbury, Connecticut.
According to local reports, thousands of people came out to see the rapper, who was extremely late for his performance.
At least a dozen police cars from five different districts were called in to quell a number of disturbances that had broken out as a result of the rapper’s tardiness.
“There was a huge crowd there to hear a hot performer,” Mayor Mark Boughton told theStamford Advocate. “From my understanding, he was really late. This was a very popular entertainer who belongs in a venue that can accommodate 2,000 or 3,000 people, not 600. Throw in alcohol and that age group…”
Several people were arrested, while two people were taken to the hospital for minor injuries.
In more positive news, Meek Mill hosted a coat drive in his hometown of Philadelphia over the weekend as well.
The rapper was at 24th and Diamond where he and several associates passed out coats to those in need, in preparation for the cold weather.
“Wen people do s**t for da hood dey wanna call the news for publicity. We just put in da work on da low,” Meek Mill tweeted yesterday (October 23).http://theurbandaily.com”%5D
