A detailed account of what Reese allegedly told cops during the arrest has surfaced.
Yeah, Lil Reese might have had a little weed in his pocket.”So what?” the Def Jam rapper allegedly told Chicago police just before his latest arrest this weekend. “There’s serious crime out there,” he said, according to court records. “This ain’t a big deal. I’m gangster.” But it was enough to drag the 20-year-old Washington Park man back into bond court for the third time in three months Sunday. Lil Reese, whose real name is Tavares Taylor, was charged this time with drug possession and violating the conditions of his bail bond. (Chicago Sun-Times)
The rapper also ran into law enforcement around mid-June.
Cook County Judge Adam Bourgeois Jr. set bail at $5,000 for the 20-year-old Washington Park man whose real name is Tavares Taylor. Court records said Taylor “presented false documentation to obtain” a 2006 BMW 750 Li on April 13. Neither police nor prosecutors could elaborate further on the case Sunday afternoon. Lil Reese was taken into custody Saturday in the 10100 block of S. Halsted, according to an arrest report. (CBS Local)
