Rapper Cassidy is a suspect in a murder case, TMZ reports.
The rapper has been named a suspect in a murder case and two attempted murder cases in Philadelphia, according to law enforcement.
Cassidy was arrested in Hackensack, New Jersey this weekend on a probation violation, and according to police forces, the arrest was made in connection with alleged crimes in Philadelphia.
The police said forces in Philadelphia had phoned in a favour to the Hackensack Police Department, telling them to arrest Cassidy on the probation violation and warned them “to consider [Cassidy] armed and dangerous,” saying it was a “high-risk warrant”.
Undercover officers with the Hackensack PD followed the 28-year-old rapper, whose real name Barry Reese, and then arrested him during a felony motor vehicle stop.
Cassidy previously did an eight month jail stint for involuntary manslaughter, aggravated assault and possession of an instrument of crime. He was released in 2006.
Cassidy is reportedly still in custody in New Jersey, with bail being set at $200,000.
