Chicago rapper Lil Reese was reportedly arrested Sunday (April 28), 48 hours after a warrant was issued for him on various crime-related charges.

According to reports, the arrest went down early Sunday morning.

South Side rapper Lil Reese was caught snoozing in a car early Sunday and arrested on a warrant. The arrest warrant was issued Friday in Champaign county for Lil Reese, 20, whose birth name is Tavares Taylor. He was arrested at about 4 a.m. Sunday on the 4400 block of South Wells Street in the city's Fuller Park neighborhood after a police officer on patrol saw him sleeping in a vehicle, according to Cook County court documents.

Reports claim the charges relate to crimes he commited back in 2012.

The arrest warrant issued Friday is connected to charges of criminal trespass to a residence with persons present, mob action and battery that allegedly took place in February 2012, according to the Champaign County Circuit Clerk's Web site and Cook County court documents. Officials at the Champaign County Sheriff's Office would not give further information as to the circumstances surrounding the charges on Sunday, saying they could not comment because Taylor is not in their custody. Taylor was being held in lieu of a $100,000 bond as of Sunday afternoon. Taylor pleaded guilty to burglary charges in May 2010 and received two years probation, according to Cook County court documents. (Chicago Tribune)

The rapper caught heat last fall when footage leaked across the Internet of him attacking a female.

There is a video going around that shows Lil Reese, a rapper from Chicago who just got signed to a major label, beating the life outta some girl. Lil Reese claims the video was filmed a year or two ago. I don't listen to Lil Reese's music or know anything about him, but I read a few tweets from hip hop blogs that claim the girl Lil Reese was beating is actually his baby momma. According to statistics, one in four women (25%) has experienced domestic violence in her lifetime, and one in five teens in a serious relationship reports having been hit, slapped, or pushed by a partner. So if she is a battered baby momma, she is not alone. (Chicago Now)

Shortly after the video went viral, Reese stepped forward and issued an open apology.

"Everybdy makes mistakes I was out of charcter & ive grown sense then Dont judge me for my past i can admit my wrongs and I apologize.#3hunna," he tweeted October 26th.
