*Rapper Cassidy was arrested by police after a warrant squad from the Philadelphia Police Department called the celebrity’s local law enforcement to notify them that he had an open warrant out for violating his probation.
The rapper, whose real name is Barry Reese, is also a suspect in a murder and two attempted murders in Philadelphia said Hackensack, New Jersey police Lt. Timothy Lloyd.
Officers from the Hackensack Police Emergency Response Team and the police department’s juvenile bureau watched Reese’s home Saturday on Reilly Court, Lloyd said.
Reese left his house about 1:30 p.m. and was followed by police to a local convenience store, Lloyd said.
That is when an officer conducted a felony motor vehicle stop and arrested him. No injuries were sustained.
