On May 10, footage from the December 2022 arrest of Lil Meech at a Florida airport was leaked online. While trying to pass through security, TSA agents found an unloaded firearm in a bag that Meech had loaded onto the scanner belt. “They left that [the gun] in my bag. I did not pack my own bag,” Meech can be heard saying in the footage. This lead to claims that Meech had snitched on various people, including his brother and a security guard.
Meech was arrested on gun charges, but they were subsequently dropped in January 2023. Eventually, Meech’s attorney was able to prove the gun belonged to one of Meech’s security team. However, there were reports that Meech’s security guard owned up to the mistake at the time, but was ignored by TSA officials. Meech was subsequently detained by the TSA.
Lil Meech Didn’t Snitch
However, after a variety of videos and posts emerged calling Meech a “snitch”, his lawyer has shut down that line of thinking. “This is a nonstory and completely inaccurate,” Bradford Cohen wrote on Instagram. “Security was at the airport and immediately took responsibility for the firearm. Security is licensed, bonded, and has a carry permit. This was an error from the start and that is why I got the case dismissed and no one was charged. Clickbait at its finest without knowing the whole story.”

Cohen’s response was primarily aimed at YouTuber Ceddy Nash, who had made a video entitled “Lil Meech Snitches On Little Brother and Security For Guns Airport arrest”. At the time of writing, the six-minute video has 30,000 views. While the response to the footage of Meech was overwhelming, Nash, who has 135,000 subscribers, was one of the bigger platformed individuals to address it. Nash responded to Cohen’s video. He commented, “So did he not say that? You all can see my story. He flat out said “that’s my brother’s bag”. So there is that part.” However, his defense has gained little traction.
