According to TMZ, Lil Meech (real name Demetrius Flenory Jr.) was arrested at Fort Lauderdale Airport in Florida on Tuesday after airport security discovered a firearm in his carry-on luggage.
Plenty of actors in 50’s Power universe also took shots at Meech’s legal troubles in his comment section.
“When trynna prove BMF is more realistic than Power goes wrong,” Power‘s Michael Rainey Jr. wrote. While Gianni Paolo clowned Meech’s haircut: “I lowkey like Meech but he should’ve heard someone say cut not cut.”

Meech was reportedly carrying an unloaded Glock-19 but was in possession of a 15-round magazine without owning a gun permit for the state of Florida, which prompted Broward County deputies to be called and arrest the 22-year-old.
Lil Meech has been booked on a felony charge of “introducing a firearm into the sterile area of the airport.”
This isn’t Meech’s first run-in with the law this year as he was arrested in May for allegedly stealing a $250,000 Richard Mille watch from Miami’s Haimov Jewelers back in February. He reportedly used an $80,000 Rolex as a down payment but didn’t pay the $200,000 balance left.
As for BMF, Season 2 has been filmed and will be returning to screens on January 6 at 8 p.m. on the STARZ network. Mo’Nique is set to make her debut in the series this season.
The new season will draw viewers further into the rise of the Flenory brothers — Big Meech and Southwest Tee — as they begin expanding their empire beyond Detroit, with their sights set on global domination.
