Philly native and rap sensation Meek Mill reportedly got involved in fisticuffs with some overeager fans on Wednesday.

It wasn’t immediately clear if Meek, whose real name is Robert Williams, would face repercussions in Philadelphia over the incident, where he remains on probation for a 2008 drug and gun case.

TMZ broke the story, reporting that a scuffle broke out Wednesday in St. Louis Lambert International Airport after Meek was approached by an airport employee who wanted a picture.

Mill responded to rumors that he had been arrested with an Instagram picture of his feet up in his tour van, a Mercedes Sprinter. “Locked in the slammer nope popped up in Miami,” he wrote.
