Meek Mill's legal team is requesting the rapper be released from jail on bond due to an allegedly false testimony by a Philadelphia police officer in his 2008 trial.

According to new court documents filed on Tuesday (Feb. 14), the officer who arrested Meek in 2007-Reginald Graham-has a history of making dirty arrests and the rapper's team wants his testimony thrown out. The "Wins and Loses" rapper is now in prison for violating probation stemming from that case, but documents say Graham's past on-the-job behavior needs a review.

According to the Inquirer story, Graham, who retired from the force a year ago, testified at Meek's 2008 trial that he had watched Meek sell what was later determined to be crack.

Graham's name appeared on a list obtained by the Philadelphia Inquirer, of a collection of officers the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office cited as having "history of lying, racial bias, or brutality". A member of the same police team as Graham, Jerold Gibson, claims that he was present during the 2007 arrest and that Graham is not being factual about Meek pointing a gun at anybody.

It is a great possibility that Meek Mill could become a free man sooner than later. Graham also claimed the rapper pulled out an illegal gun and started trying to shoot at them, which the rapper denied. "I would steal with Reggie Graham", Walker admitted.

Most notably, at Mill's 2008 trial, Graham testified to recovering two packets of alleged crack cocaine from a criminal informant who allegedly purchased them from Mill, but no property receipt or lab report for those packets was offered in evidence at trial - much less the alleged packets themselves. Among other things, he claimed that Graham "frequently stole" money found during searches and "often beat people he considered suspects".
