Lil Reese Arrested Again, Charged With Auto Theft

Less than two months after being arrested for his involvement in a videotaped assault case, Lil Reese, 20, was in bond court yesterday (June 23) for misdemeanor theft, the Sun Times reports.

According to court documents, the Def Jam signed rapper, born Tavares Taylor, presented false documentation to obtain a 2006 BMW 750 Li on April 13.

The arrest report revealed Taylor was taken into custody on Saturday, on the 10100 block of S. Halsted. in Chicago. A Cook County judge has set bail at $5,000.

In the state of Illinois, Taylor could face up to 7 years in a state penitentiary and/or a fine of up to $25,000 if found guilty. Court records show Taylor intends to plead not guilty. —Christopher Harris
