Rapper Lil Reese arrested while sleeping in car
South Side rapper Lil Reese was caught sleeping 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 about 4 a.m. Sunday in the 4400 block of South Wells Street after a police officer on patrol saw him sleeping in a vehicle, according to Cook County court documents.
The arrest warrant issued Thursday 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 website and Cook County court documents. Officials at the Champaign County Sheriff’s Office would not give further information about the charges Sunday, saying they could not comment because Taylor is not in their custody. Taylor was being held in lieu of a $100,000 bail Sunday.
