Chicago rapper Lil Reese, born Tavares Taylor, was arrested early Sunday (April 28) morning while sleeping in a car in Champaign county. A warrant had been issued for the Def Jam signee earlier this week.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Reese was arrested on the 4400 block of South Wells Street in the Chicago’s Fuller Park neighborhood. A police officer had spotted the “Money Stackin'” rapper sleeping in a vehicle. 

The arrest warrant was issued for charges of criminal trespass, mob action and battery that supposedly occurred in February 2012. Authorities have not disclosed details on what exactly occurred on that date.

Reese, 20, who is part of Chief Keef’s GBE clique, is currently being held on $100,000 bond.

In late 2012, Reese came under fire when footage was revealed of him punching and stomping out a young woman named Tiairah Marie during a house party. Reese eventually apologized for the incident via Twitter.
