The “Whatever You Need” rapper appeared on The Tonight Show later Thursday night in a pre-taped performance of “Young Black America” with The-Dream.

“If his name was John Smith, he wouldn’t have even been arrested,” Mill’s lawyer Joseph Tacopina told the Daily News. “You could go to 110th St. and Dyckman right now and you’ll see 10 kids popping wheelies on their bikes. Nobody gets arrested.”

According to reports, Mill was held overnight and will appear before a judge on Friday.
