This past weekend, it was reported that Cassidy was arrested on a probation violation, and is a suspect in a murder case and two attempted murders, as Lt. Timothy Lloyd of the Hackensack NJ Police said that the warrant was issued for violating probation, but that Cassidy is also a suspect in a murder and two attempted murders in Philadelphia, but that’s not the case, as the Philly rapper was only arrested dude to a probation violation.
A source for the Philadelphia Police Department cleared up the Hackensack PD’s false report as they told XXL Mag:
“In reference to the recent inquires regarding Barry Reese (aka Cassidy), on Saturday, May 14, 2011, Reese was arrested by Hackensack Police for a probation violation for a previous aggravated assault incident in Philadelphia. Reese was placed in probation violation status for non-reporting only. Reese is currently being held in Bergen County Prison awaiting extradition to Philadelphia. Reese is not wanted for any other crime / violation in Philadelphia.”
