Cassidy Explains His Arrest For Violating Probation

Barry Reese clears up the rumors surrounding the warrants out for his arrest.

Early reports of Cassidy’s arrest last week claimed that the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania native was arrested for violating probation and wanted for murder and two attempted murders. After the Philadelphia Police Department denied that he was a suspect in murder cases, the rapper, born Barry Reese, is clearing his name.

During an interview on Cosmic Kev’s The Come Up Show last night, Cass explained that the arrest was strictly for violation of probation, and that his new P.O. referenced the previous murder charges from which the probation stems on the warrant.

“It was something light. I’m still on probation from the situation that I dealt with about six, seven years ago,” he explained. “Y’all know I was down for the murder and the two attempted murders before. I beat the murders and the two attempts, but I got involuntary manslaughter and two aggravated assaults. So for the two aggravated assaults, I’m still on probation. It’s like a real light probation.”

Cass, who is staying in Bergen County, New Jersey, would usually receive calls from his probation officer to schedule a visit, but he was recently given a new P.O. who expected him to come through without prompt. “I’m running around the world. I didn’t even go every month like the regular person, so it slipped my mind,” he said. “The way my P.O. wrote the warrants out was that I had a warrant, and he put the murder on there because that was the case it was revolved around. […] But I wasn’t fighting a new jawn.”

His lawyer and entertainment lawyer headed to court to make sure that everything was squared away. “They both went down there to get everything straight. And when they talked to the judge, they realized it was just a warrant because of violation of probation because I didn’t go to see my P.O.,” he said. “And the murder stuff that was on the paper, that didn’t hold no weight. The cops said ‘All he was wanted for was the violation of probation, not no murder or nothing like that.’ So that’s how I was able to get the warrants lifted, and then once I proved to the people in Jersey that I got the warrants lifted, they was able to lift the fugitive charge and I was able to come home.”

    Uh, is it me or is this dude still not taking the situation seriously? Dude says, “Y’all know I was down for the murder and the two attempted murders before. I beat the murders and the two attempts, but I got involuntary manslaughter and two aggravated assaults. So for the two aggravated assaults, I’m still on probation. It’s like a real light probation.” Cass don't even care someone lost a life. Real light probation? Really? This ignorant fuck can't even be responsible for "Real light probation".

      Who cares bout Cass? REAL Hip Hop fans do, this man do alot behind the scenes of hip hop, he mite not b the most famous but He's been droppin music, since awoke from the coma, I respect him cuz Real recognize Real, n Real niggas do real things. He a cat that'll speak his mind regardless of the feedback most niggas would play they part. Since he doesn't have a part in this "industry" he's doing it lil step at a time, He got his own label from Melo, n he got a new artist that Spits better than '10-'11 top freshmen. He's doing great, he's been back, check his Music. Er'body check that freestyle he dropped.
