Lil Reese, 20, whose birth name is Tavares Taylor, was arrested on a sidewalk in the 6400 block of South Eggleston Avenue at 6:40 p.m. Saturday, police said. Taylor, of the 5100 block of South Wabash Avenue in the city’s Washington Park neighborhood, was found with about $24 worth of marijuana, or four grams, police said.

In a hearing before Criminal Court Judge Adam Bourgeois Jr., Taylor was ordered held in lieu of $10,000 bail.

Taylor has had other recent run-ins with the law, including another appearance in bond court last month on misdemeanor charges of using false documentation to obtain a 2006 BMW.

Upon a search, police found four grams of marijuana on his person along with $2,029 in cash. According to the report, Reese told the officers, “It’s mine, I got a little weed. So what? There’s serious crime out there. This ain’t a big deal. I’m gangster.”

Reese was ordered held on $10,000 bail.
