Bad news for Lil Reese fans.
The Chicago native was arrested for felony possession of a firearm last night (July 28) and is being held at Cook County jail. Bail is set at 50K. Reese could be in serious trouble after a string of arrests over the last couple of years.
In May 2010, Reese pleaded guilty to burglary charges and was given two years of probation. April 2013, Lil Reese was arrested while sleeping in a car and charged with trespassing, mob action and battery which stemmed from a February 2012 incident. Reese—real name Tavares Taylor—was back in court again two months later because he “presented false documentation to obtain a 2006 BMW 750 Li on April 13.” The charges were later dropped.
Reps from Def Jam have not responded at this time. XXL will update as the story progresses.
