House Party movie star Christopher "Kid" Reid has once again found himself trouble with the law, as new reports claim an active warrant is out for his arrest.
Although the warrant was issued last week, details of its existence have just now emerged.
Kid has more adult problems ... the former Kid 'n Play rapper is once again a wanted man ... after blowing off a hearing stemming from his 2010 DUI arrest ... TMZ has learned. According to L.A. County Superior Court records ... a bench warrant was issued for the former "House Party" star on January 5, 2012 after he failed to show up for a progress hearing regarding the 2010 arrest. Now, if Kid gets stopped by police for any reason ... they can haul his ass back to jail ... just like last time. Doesn't seem like Kid is worried though ... 'cause TWO DAYS after the warrant was issued, dude was cracking jokes about the situation ... telling us, "I've got DUIs I'm ducking!" (TMZ)
Last summer, the actor/rapper was arrested in Los Angeles.

An elaborate account of the warrant was unveiled following his arrest.
Patricia Kelly, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles Superior Court, said that a warrant for the 47-year-old's arrest was issued on August 2 after he skipped out on a July 25 hearing to prove completion of his probation requirements. He is currently still in custody with his bail set at $26,000. TMZ, who was first to report the arrest, noted that he was "very cooperative" with the cops. Kid was busted for a DUI in Los Angeles on July 8 last year. (Ace Showbiz)
Kid is widely-known for his hip-hop contributions through the 1980's and early 1990's.
Along with Christopher "Play" Martin, Reid delivered a positive, feel-good brand of hip-hop in the late 1980s until the gangsta rap era arrived. The group's last album, "Face the Nation," was released in 1991. They are perhaps best known for transitioning their act to the big ("House Party" films) and small (Saturday morning cartoons) screens. (Billboard)
